Pocono West, McHugh Among PennDOT Paint the Plow Winners!
Pocono Mountain West High School won the high school “Fan Favorite” award inthe 2019 PennDOT “Paint the Plow” safety outreach contest. The contest promotes winter driving safety and fosters appreciation for high school art programs and student creativity.
Monsignor McHugh School was the winner the intermediate/elementary school “Fan Favorite” award.
Winner of the “Judges’ Pick” award was Stroudsburg High School. JT Lambert Intermediate School Plow 2 was the winner for the intermediate/elementary school “Judges’ Pick,” which was determined through judging by PennDOT representatives and community members.
During the winter weather season, the blades, as well as those painted by the other student participants, will be used to maintain state-owned roadways in Monroe County.
“Paint the Plow” is a joint effort of PennDOT and area high schools. Students are invited to paint a plow blade with an original design based on a provided theme. The 2019 statewide theme is “Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush.” It was chosen to draw attention to the need for motorists to give themselves ample time for travel during wintry weather in order to arrive safely to their destination.
