Richard Simmons' Peeps Disco Sweat by Michael Houle took top prize in the individual category in the 2nd annual Peep Yourself to Health contest.
Health Services’ 2nd Annual Peep Contest challenged contestants to creatively show how they manage their stress. As with last year’s inaugural event, the catch was they had to use marshmallow Peeps to do it.
For this second contest, individuals and groups submitted 18 dioramas depicting Peeps doing everything from dancing to sunning to swimming to listening to music, all in an effort to reduce stress and stay healthy.
