Our law firm continues to bring attention to the tragedies caused by distracted driving — whether it's by alcohol, drugs, texting, cell phones, or anything else that impairs your safety behind the wheel.
Among the community projects we sponsor, we launched the Edgar Snyder & Asscoiates "Words to be Heard" Scholarship Contest in 2007. Over the past 7 years, we proudly awarded 63 scholarships to high school seniors for their projects that discouraged underage drinking and distracted driving. So far, we've given away $86,000 to help students afford college.
We are proud to announce that the Edgar Snyder & Associates' 8th Annual "Words to be Heard" Scholarship Contest is now open to high school seniors across Western PA who plan to attend a four-year college or university in the Fall of 2014. Our law firm will award:
