The Sioux Falls Canaries' mini-mascot Peep has been nominated for two Golden Reggy Awards, by the Mascot Hall of Fame.

Peep, with assistance from the Sioux Falls Canaries Community Foundation, has made his goal to reach as many kids as possible, to let them know reading is so fun!

But hurry, this Saturday (Nov. 12) is the final day to vote!
