Eight-Year-Old Girl Makes Model of the Solar System Out of Peeps, Wins More Candy


2013 marks the fifth year of The Denver Post‘s Peeps diorama sculpture contest, where they invite kids and adults alike to… well, to make a diorama out of Peeps. It’s pretty much what it sounds like. The winner of the children’s division this year is eight-year-old Eleanor Clements who, as you can see, used Peeps to construct a model of the solar system. Said the third-grader: “I learned about [the solar system] in preschool, and I like looking at stars.”

Her prizes are a “giant [box] of candy from Just Born, the makers of Peeps” and our undying respect.
