PennDOT declares Paint the Plow best
Winners have been announced in PennDOT’s “Paint the Plow” competition in Warren and Forest counties.
The program “promotes winter driving safety and fosters appreciation for high school art programs and student creativity,” PennDOT said in a Wednesday statement.
Eisenhower High School won the “Fan Favorite” award, which was determined by online voting.
“The plow depicts a winter landscape, red tractor with a knight (school mascot), and the message ‘Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush,'” PennDOT said. ” Youngsville and Warren high schools tied for honorable mention with the exact same number of votes.”
PennDOT staff made a “Judges’ Pick” which went to Youngsville with a design that “depicts two eagles standing in snow with the text, ‘Don’t Rush in the Ice and Slush.'”
PennDOT said the blades from each high school in Warren and Forest county will be “used to maintain state-owned roadways in Warren and Forest counties.”
