It’s that special time of year, the time when we all gather round to judge Peeps dioramas with all due seriousness.
We had <a href=”http://www.abajournal.com/gallery/peeps2012/” target=_blank” title=”quite a showing”>quite a showing this year. Rob Gancitano of Foodage.com produced a series of eight dioramas to illustrate the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution. The prolific commenter “B. McLeod” wrote and recorded a ballad along with his two dioramas. A special shout-out goes to Aaron Ryel, a student teacher at Winton Woods High School in Cincinnati, whose two 11th grade Law and Civics classes constructed 10 Peeps dioramas on the theme of evidence searches. (“Ladies, is that cocaine?”)
But now, it’s time to rule on our finalists. Which deserve our prizes of $100, $50 and $25 gift baskets from Peeps & Co.? Only you can choose. Our 10 finalists appear below, followed by the poll in which you can vote for your favorite diorama. Polls close at 4 p.m. Thursday, April 12. Let the games begin!
