Clearfield County, PA – PennDOT wants you to vote for your favorite plow that has been decorated by local high schools. The theme for the Paint the Plow contest this year is Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush.
This year for PennDOT’s District 2, DuBois Central Catholic, Clearfield Alliance School, and Harmony Area School District were some of the participants in our local area. Votes for District 2 must be made by Oct. 27.
For District 10, it was Brockway, Brookville, Clarion-Limestone, Redbank Valley, and Jeff Tech. Their voting will start in November.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) northcentral region invites the public to vote on eight plows decorated by high school students as part of the “Paint the Plow” program.
A new voting format has been introduced for the 2019 “Paint the Plow” program. Members of the public can vote for their favorite plow through the PennDOT website at www.penndot.gov/District2 by clicking on the “Paint the Plow” icon.
Voters will be taken to a survey site where they can pick their favorite plow. The plow photo that receives the most votes between October 21 and 11:59 P.M. October 27 will be deemed the “Fan Favorite.”
“Paint the Plow” is a statewide outreach aimed at promoting winter driving safety and fostering appreciation for high school art programs and student creativity.
Earlier this year, PennDOT invited high school students across the nine counties of District 2 to paint plow blades based on the statewide theme “Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush.”
The theme was chosen to highlight the importance of taking precautions before traveling in wintry weather. Allowing for extra travel time helps drivers arrive to their destinations safely.
Students from Bellefonte High School in Centre County, Cameron County High School, Central Mountain High School and Sugar Valley Rural Charter School in Clinton County, Coudersport High School in Potter County and Clearfield Alliance Christian School, DuBois Central Catholic High School and Harmony High School in Clearfield County all participated this year in District 2’s competition.
District 2 serves Cameron, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin and Potter counties.
