PITTSBURGH – With the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs fast approaching, the Pittsburgh Penguins are reaching out to students in Allegheny County and the City of Pittsburgh to capture the excitement of the NHL playoffs through a banner-making contest encompassing Grades 1-12.
Each school in Allegheny County is encouraged to create a 4’x6’ banner and submit only one banner per grade level to represent their school.
There will be one banner selected for each grade as a “Students for Stanley” contest winner. These 12 banners will be displayed on the CONSOL Energy Center concourse during home playoff games in the first round of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The banners for each winning grade will also be featured on the Penguins’ website.
One banner will be named the overall winner for elementary, middle and high school levels. Each overall winner will receive a commemorative “Students for Stanley” trophy for display at their school.
Schools must complete an entry form and upload photos of their banner entry to pittsburghpenguins.com/studentsforstanley
The Penguins’ organization has been hosting the “Students for Stanley” rewards program for Allegheny County students since 2008.
