Pittsburgh Penguins president David Morehouse and the team’s mascot, Iceburgh, awarded the “Student Signs for Stanley” contest grand prize to Grandview Elementary School in Tarentum during a school assembly on Friday, May 30.
Elementary, Middle and Intermediate schools in the Greater Pittsburgh area were invited to participate in the contest, submitting videos to show their support for the Penguins in their quest for the Stanley Cup. Each school was judged on students’ creative use of signage in and around the school, with an emphasis on design and school spirit.
“We were delighted with the creativity and passion shown in all the entries – underscoring the excitement the Penguins have generated in our community,” Morehouse said. “The Grandview Elementary entry was spectacular, and we were thrilled to visit with the students and teachers at their school assembly.”
Grandview Elementary received a $5,000 award from the Penguins. The school also will host an assembly in the fall with two Penguins players serving as guest speakers.
