COVID-19 No Match for Peeps

Posted on by wisibs

COVID-19 got you down? Stuck indoors? Looking for ideas to keep the kids happy while schools are closed?

PEEPS TO THE RESCUE!!

While in-person WisconSibs events are suspended for a few weeks, the Sibs Are My Peeps Photo Challenge is going strong! Kids, adults, grandparents…ANYBODY and EVERY BODY…can join in and have fun.

HOW TO ENTER

1. Using Peeps® and a box (not to exceed 24” deep X 24” tall) create a scene that depicts “Take a Peep Around the World”, the theme of the 2020 WisconSibsSibs Are My Peeps®Photo Challenge. Take your Peeps® on a magical, marshmallowy-sweet adventure to anywhere in the world. Melt ‘em, mold ‘em, dress ‘em up. Be creative. Find ideas at: https://wisconsibs.org/what-we-offer/sibs-are-my-peeps/

NEW OPTION!  Don’t have Peeps® or a box in the house and can’t get out to get some? No problem.  Make a “flat Peep” display using paper, some crayons, and of course your imagination.  Pinterest is a good place to find Peeps coloring pages or download this one. Peeps coloring page

2. Email no more than two photos of your scene to: [email protected] Photos must be .jpg, .jpeg or .png. Your email must also include:

Names, ages and hometown/state of all who helped create the scene.

Phone number and e-mail address (not for publication).

Title of your scene. (Extra points for cleverness of course.)

2-4 sentences about your creation or its significance.

All submissions will be reviewed and five winners will be announced. Winners will be awarded  “Sibs are my Peeps” t-shirts.

“In these confusing times, its even more important to find ways to use our imaginations as an escape or respite. We hope this challenge will provide some fun for siblings and many others. We also hope to raise awareness of the many roles siblings play in our lives as we approach National Siblings Day on April 10. We especially acknowledge the often-overlooked critical roles that siblings play when one may have a disability. ” says Harriet Redman, Executive Director of WisconSibs.

The Sibs are my Peeps®” Contest welcomes friends, families, or co-workers, or any other individual or group, regardless of age or ability. No purchase is necessary to enter the contest.

QUESTION?

Do I need to be a sibling?  Nope. Anyone can enter. Any age. Any ability. Any person. Any group, business, or school. From anywhere.

Do I need to be artistic? Nope. Just be willing to have fun with it. The theme this year is “Take a Peep Around the World”.

Does it cost anything? Nope. Only cost is purchasing Peeps which are about $1.30 a package.

May I post my creation on social media? You sure can! Just tag it with #sibsaremypeeps and #wisconsibs  To officially enter the challenge, please email your 2 photos to [email protected]

Peep Peep!

Posted on by wisibs

They may just look like sticky, sweet, marshmallowy-treats, but those cute bunnies and chicks made magic happen in the creative hands of those who entered our Sibs Are My Peeps contest this past month.

Some used the opportunity for team-building in their agency or family. Some tell a story. Still others used the opportunity to tell about their passion or an upcoming event.

Thank you to the Willems Student Marketing Team for collaborating with WisconSibs to make this project so much fun and bring out the voices of WisconSibs and their fans. The team of Appleton High School students applied their knowledge and youthful thinking to help us carry out this project.  Well done, team!

We are very proud to announce the semi-finalists for 2018.  These winning entries will advance to the finals at the free Fox Cities Kidz Expo on April 14th at the new Fox Cities Exhibition Center.  Come visit our booth, sponsored by We Energies, and vote for your favorite to be the WisconSibs Peepl’s Choice!
