(WJLA) - It's an Easter tradition in the D.C. Metro area - the annual Washington Post competition to create a diorama scene out of sugary Peeps treats.

This year's grand prize-winning scene was crafted by three friends, Matthew McFeeley, 34; Mary Clare Peate, 33; and Alex Baker, 34; all of Washington, and depicts an iconic moment in history.

The diorama is called "I Have a Dream: Martin Luther King Jr. Addresses the Peeple," and depicts the famous speech and march on Washington in 1963 - a fitting piece, given that Wednesday is Emancipation Day in the district.

The diorama is painted in eight shades of gray, an homage to black-and-white photos of the real event in 1963.
