Make your pet a STAR!
Submit your "PETS OF SOUTH HILLS" Photo Contest entry today!
At South Hills, we consider our staff, faculty, students, and alumni to be part of the family. That warm and fuzzy feeling also extends to our furry and feathered (and scaled) family members.

You're invited to join us for some summer fun and to participate in our "Pets of South Hills" photo contest. We were inspired to create the contest when one of our grads, Thad Riggle, sent in pictures taken at his workplace (Amazon Web Services) for his Alumni Spotlight Story. His photos include his adorable dog, Bronson, who often goes to work with Thad, and they made us smile. We thought it would be fun to see more of our "extended family" members and the "Pets of South Hills" photo contest was born.

Send in a picture of you, along with your pet(s),with each complete submission, and you'll be entered in a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card.
