We are excited to announce the grand prize winners of the 2015 Peep Contest! This year the theme was "a famous painting or sculpture."
Congratulations to our "all ages" winner, the Park Hill Teen Advisory Board! They created Denver's big blue bear sculpture, I See What You Mean, with blue Peeps. We loved their creativity and shout-out to Denver!
The "adult" grand prize winner was submitted by a customer at Ross-Cherry Creek who created Peeps Playing Poker. It is an intricate masterpiece with amazing detail.

A wise woman once said "Your body hears everything your mind says." That woman was Naomi Judd. Okay, I don't know how wise she is, but I sure connected with that quote.

This Saturday, March 28, the Denver Public Library's Plaza and Services to New Immigrants Initiative will partner with History Colorado to offer free activities and museum tours for New Americans and their families.
We all spend a huge chunk of our lives at work. We may spend more time with our co-workers than we do with our loved ones. So when you have a bad day or are stressed, it can feel completely overwhelming.
