‘Words to be Heard’ scholarship contest


Last updated 1/1/2013 at 1:54pm

Graduating high school seniors in western Pennsylvania are invited to enter the Seventh Annual “Words to be Heard” Scholarship Contest, sponsored by Edgar Snyder & Associates. 

The law firm is asking students to create programs that will discourage their peers from underage drinking, drunk driving or texting while driving. Students can submit entries using their preference of creative options, including videos, PowerPoint presentations, brochures, websites, essays, or another original approach.

A panel of outside judges will review the entries and will award one grand prize scholarship of $5,000, three second place scholarships of $2,500, and three runners-up scholarships of $1,000 to be used toward the students’ continuing education.

“We designed the scholarship contest so teens would think about how they can influence their peers to prevent tragedies. It’s a way to raise community support and awareness, while offering students a chance to earn a college scholarship,” said Attorney Edgar Snyder.

Students entering the contest must be high school seniors who plan to attend a four-year college, university, or trade school in the summer or fall of 2013. All entries must be postmarked on or before March 29, 2013 to be eligible. 

To view the official rules or to request more information, visit or, or, call Edgar Snyder & Associates at 1-800-394-3660 ext. 4412.
