In November 2010, Steeltown Entertainment Project, in part with Rotary International launched "Take A Shot At Changing The World", a viral video contest based off the inspiring new documentary "The Shot Felt 'Round The World". The contest revolves around the topic of polio and is meant to inspire students to create their own viral videos to inform the public about polio in hopes of eradicating the disease for good. The contest is open to middle school and high school students in the Western Pennsylvania region with the winner receiving a grand prize of $5,000 and a chance to have their project aired on television.

On March 2, 2014, Steeltown held a Teen Oscar Party at the Andy Warhol Museum. Students from all parts of the city showed up to hear experts talk about their experience in the film industry and some got to participate in a filmmaking workshop. The night ended with special effects artist Steve Tolin doing a squib demo. Overall, everyone had a great time and left the event in true celebrity style with their own Oscar Swag Bag full of goodies.
