Past “It Can Wait” Winners
"It Can Wait" Contest
From 2015-2022, the PNA Foundation joined with AT&T to host statewide “It Can Wait” editorial contests. PNA member newspapers were invited to host local contests to encourage high school students in their communities to help make roadways safer. A winner was recognized in each participating community and entered into the statewide contest. Over the years, more than 885 students have participated in the contest across Pennsylvania.
