The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) honored the District 4 winners of the “Paint the Plow” safety outreach contest which promotes winter driving safety and fosters appreciation for high school art programs and student creativity.
Dunmore High School won the “Fan Favorite” award, which was determined by online voting at www.penndot.gov.
The plows all incorporated the message “Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush” on the blades. Winners of the “Judges’ Pick” were awarded to Dunmore High School, Pittston Area High School, Wallenpaupack Area High School, and Blue Ridge High School. The “Judges’ Pick,” were determined by PennDOT representatives.
