Penn DOT Invites High Schooler’s to Paint the Plow
The program challenges youth to incorporate a predetermined theme into an original mural that they paint on one of PennDOT’s snowplow blades to promote winter driving safety and foster appreciation for school art programs and student creativity. The 2022 theme, “Put Down the Device in Snow and Ice,” was chosen to draw attention to the need for motorists to give themselves ample time to travel during wintry weather to arrive safely to their destination.
Paint the Plow was piloted in Cambria County in 2015 and later expanded to several surrounding counties across the state.
Students in public and private schools are eligible to participate, though school officials must make the arrangements. Plow delivery and pick-up dates vary by county. The program categories may be modified based on participation numbers.
Additional information on the program, including the guidelines for participation, can be found online at www.penndot.pa.gov/TravelInPA/
