Pens to honor Grandview Elementary as Grand Prize Winner in Student Signs for Stanley Contest

by Staff Writer / Pittsburgh Penguins

Pittsburgh Penguins president David Morehouse and the team’s mascot, Iceburgh, will present the grand prize award in the “Student Signs for Stanley” contest to Grandview Elementary School in Tarentum. The ceremony will take place during a school assembly Friday at 9:30 a.m.


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’re looking forward to meeting the students and teachers at Friday’s assembly in their auditorium.”

Grandview Elementary will receive a $5,000 award from the Penguins organization for a pre-determined in-school program. The school also will host an assembly in the fall with two Penguins players serving as guest speakers.
