In case you missed it, the Pioneer Press has announced the winners of its 10th annual Peeps contest.
Begun as a way to fill newspaper space in 2004, the contest has become a hugely popular feature as pun fans vie for the most clever diorama starring the marshmallow Easter staple. The Pioneer Press received 220 entries this year.
The diorama winner was an entry called "The Life of Pie," created by Ron Young of Shoreview.
The winner of the video category was "The Fall of the Peep," by Kevin Malmsten of White Bear Lake, age 13.
The newspaper contest has sparked a number of imitators at newspapers nationwide, and in other unlikely publications, including the University of Chicago magazine and the American Bar Association Journal.
