Edgar Snyder & Associates "My Holiday Wish" Coloring Contest
Accepting Entries Now
The 2017 Coloring Contest is now closed. Please check back next fall for updates on the 2018 "My Holiday Wish" Coloring Contest.
Schools Can Win $1,000
The holiday season begins early at our law firm – each October, 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 $1,000 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.
New for 2017: In addition to our four regular winners, three additional students will have the honor of being named “All-Star Selections” by Pittsburgh sports all-stars Josh Harrison, Cam Heyward, and Kris Letang. Each athlete will choose their favorite “Holiday Wish,” and those students will receive an autographed item.
