Work with Your Peeps to Promote Health

Here’s a new take on buddying up with your friends to get healthy. The Discovery Program’s University Dialogue, Residential Life and Health Services are sponsoring “Peep Show: Peep Your Way to Health,” a contest for faculty, staff and students.
The goal: create a diorama showing others what it means to be healthy. The catch: the characters in the scene have to be made from Peeps—the marshmallow candy that, at this time of year, comes in the shape of baby chicks and bunnies.
On Wednesday, April 21, the Peep show goes live from noon to 2 p.m. in the Strafford Room at the MUB. There, people can view each of the entries. A panel of judges will select the winners and award the prizes.
Anything health-related goes. The diorama theme can reflect emotional, physical, spiritual, financial, environmental, intellectual, social or occupational wellbeing. Once it’s done, take some digital photos and submit no more than two to Health Services at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Peeps” in the subject line and include the names of the people who created the scene, whether they are faculty, staff or students, a contact name, email address and phone number. Title the diorama and provide a brief description of its message.
The grand prize for the individual entry (one to two people) is a $150 gift card and a photo in the student newspaper, The New Hampshire. The first runner up gets a $50 gift card and also will appear in TNH.
Group entries (three people or more) will win a grand prize of a pizza, sub or ice cream sundae party ($200 value) while the runners up will get a private group yoga class.
The deadline to submit a diorama is Monday, April 12, at 11:59 p.m.
