| November 30, 2018

FOREST CO., Pa. – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) northwest region invites the public to vote on seven plows decorated by students in Warren and Forest counties as part of the “Paint the Plow” program.

“Paint the Plow” is a statewide outreach aimed at promoting winter driving safety and fostering an appreciation for high school art programs.

Earlier this year, PennDOT invited high school students in Warren and Forest counties to paint plow blades based on the regional theme “Winter Wonderland.”

Students from East Forest, Eisenhower, Sheffield, Warren, West Forest, Youngsville high schools, as well as the Tidioute Charter School participated.

Members of the public can vote for their favorite plow through the PennDOT Facebook page (@PennsylvaniaDepartmentofTransportation).

Pictures of each plow are posted online in the 2018 Paint the Plow – Warren-Forest Counties photo album.

The plow photo that receives the most “Reactions” between November 29, 2018, and noon, December 6, 2018, will be deemed the “Fan Favorite.” Each “Reaction,” regardless of whether it is a like, love, haha, wow, sad, angry, will count as one vote.

During the winter weather season, the blades will be used to maintain area roadways. Along with the “Fan Favorite” award, the blades are also eligible for the “Judges’ Pick” honor as determined by PennDOT employees.
