The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) is pleased to announce the winners of District 2’s “Paint the Plow” contests, which ended Friday.
Six schools across three counties participated in the contest, the second year it’s been offered in District 2. A “Fan Favorite” choice and an Overall Winner were selected.
The “Fan Favorite” was chosen through Facebook, with users “liking” their favorite in the contest photo albums on the Paint the Plow page. The Overall Winner was chosen by a panel of judges.
District 2’s “Fan Favorite” winner is St Joseph’s Catholic Academy in Boalsburg. Harmony High School was selected by the judging panel as the Overall Winner.
“As we head into winter, our Paint the Plow contest is a very special event for us”, said District Executive Karen Michael. “The art work is impressive and it’s a real pleasure to see area students participate with so much excitement and enthusiasm.”
All high schools across Clearfield, Centre, Juniata, and Mifflin counties were invited to promote winter safety by painting department plows that were delivered to the schools.
The six schools that chose to participate in the Paint the Plow competition were Bald Eagle, Bellefonte and St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy in Centre County, Clearfield and Harmony in Clearfield County, and East Juniata in Juniata County. This year’s theme was “Ice and snow, take it slow.”
The plows will be mounted to a plow truck in the areas of the respective school districts for the upcoming winter season. District 2 plans to offer the contest across all nine counties in District 2 in 2018.
