All schools are encouraged to particpate in the Paint the Plow program. It is a way for students to think about winter safety messages and bring awareness to the work which PennDOT does to keep the roads safe during winter months. 

Participating schools are asked to produce artwork for a PennDOT plow, that will be used throughout the school district/region the following winter.

Each plow will be judged on creativity and ability to incorporate the designated safety message/theme. The "Judges' Pick" winner will be selected by a panel of PennDOT representatives and/or local community members from their respective region.

Additionally, during a designated voting period, the public will have the opportunity to select a "Fan Favorite" winner by going online to vote for the painted plow they like the most. A photo of each painted plow will be displayed online and the plow that receives the most votes will be determined as the winner.
