Edgar Snyder & Associates "My Holiday Wish" Coloring Contest

Coloring Contest

Accepting Entries Now - Schools Can Win $2,500

The holiday season begins early at our law firm – each fall, hundreds of entries pour in for our annual "My Holiday Wish" Coloring Contest. The contest, which is open to western and central Pennsylvania elementary school students, runs every year from September through the end of October. We ask students to draw us their holiday wish, and we're always amazed at the creativity of the submissions.

An independent panel of judges selects the final winning artwork, which is comprised of a grand prize winner and three runners up. When making their decision, the judges take into consideration the creativity of the design, the quality of the artwork, and the message the drawing portrays, among other factors.

Each winner receives a $2,500 donation to their school on their behalf and a VISA gift card. In addition, their artwork is featured on our law firm's holiday card and on a billboard.
