Rocky Grove High School Wins PennDOT’s ‘Paint the Plow’ Contest

| December 1, 2018

Oil City, PA – Rocky Grove High School was named the Venango County regional winner of the PennDOT’s “Paint the Plow” safety outreach contest.

The school won the “Fan Favorite” award, which was determined by online voting. The plow depicts the school mascot along with the message “Orioles Don’t Crowd the Plow.” Rocky Grove High School also won the “Judges’ Pick,” which was chosen through voting by PennDOT employees at the Venango County maintenance facility.

During the winter weather season, the blade, as well as one decorated by Oil City High School, will be used to maintain state-owned roadways in Venango County.

The “Paint the Plow” program was designed to promote winter driving safety and fosters appreciation for high school art programs.

Members of the public can view photos the painted plow blades online at the PennDOT Facebook page (@PennsylvaniaDepartmentofTransportation). Pictures of each plow are posted in the Venango County photo album.

Online voting currently open for a similar effort through PennDOT’s facilities in Warren and Forest counties.

“Paint the Plow” is a joint effort of PennDOT and area high school art programs. Students are invited to paint a plow blade with an original design based on a regional theme. The theme for the Venango County program was “Don’t Crowd the Plow.” It was chosen to draw attention to need for motorists to give plow truck drivers ample space to do their job and to never pass two trucks operating in a plow line.
