The Penguins Foundation partnered with WQED, FBI Pittsburgh and Youth Express on a contest for students in grades 6-8 attending Pittsburgh Public Schools. Aimed to engage students on the struggles of drug addiction, the #messageforHOPE initiative allowed these students to use creative mediums to address the ongoing drug epidemic and ways to rely on positive outlets rather than drugs.
