The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) northwest region invites the public to vote on two plows decorated by Venango County school students as part of the “Paint the Plow” program.
“Paint the Plow” is a statewide outreach aimed at promoting winter driving safety and fostering appreciation for high school art programs.
Earlier this year, PennDOT invited Venango County high school students to paint plow blades based on the regional theme “Don’t Crowd the Plow.”
Students from Oil City High School and Rocky Grove High 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 – Venango County photo album.
The plow photo that receives the most “Reactions” between October 22, 2018 and noon, October 29, 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.
The plows have been on display at the Venango County PennDOT facility on Route 8 in Sandycreek Township. During the winter weather season, the plows will be used to maintain area roadways. Along with the “Fan Favorite” award, the plows are also eligible for the “Judges’ Pick” honor.
