Five Schools Will Win $1,000 Each!

Our firm and Pittsburgh Steelers star Cam Heyward are excited to bring the “How to Be a Hero” coloring contest to elementary schools in Western and Central PA! Our coloring contest is one of our favorite programs, and we hope that you love it as much as we do. 

Not only is it a joy to see what students create, our firm and Cam’s foundation, The Heyward House, get to support schools and educators by donating $1,000 to each of five winning schools. And, each winning artist gets a prize of their own!

Here’s everything you need to know to participate. 

What is the “How to Be a Hero” Coloring Contest?

We are asking students in grades K – 5 to draw how they can be a hero. It’s as simple as that. Kids can draw something heartfelt, something silly, something serious, something fun. 

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes – maybe they share with their sibling or help a grandparent. Maybe they dream of helping animals. Maybe they have an idea of how kids can be kind to each other. There is no idea too big or too small.

All entries must be postmarked on or before January 26, 2024 to be eligible. 

We’ll evaluate entries based on effort, message, creativity, and thoughtfulness. 


Finalists will be contacted and posted later this month. Thank you to all who participated.


There will be five winners: 

  • Our law firm will donate $1,000 to each winner’s school on their behalf.  
  • In addition, the grand prize winner will receive a $250 Visa gift card and the remaining winners will each receive a $100 Visa gift card. 
  • All winners will have their artwork featured on a billboard in their community.
