Online Voting Open for Paint the Plow Program in Crawford County
Public Invited to Pick Their Favorite Plow through Social Media Campaign
Oil City, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) northwest region invites the public to vote on three plows decorated by Crawford County high 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 Crawford County high school students to paint plow blades based on the regional theme “School Mascots.”
Teens from Cochranton, Maplewood, and Titusville high schools participated.
Members of the public can vote for their favorite plow through the PennDOT Facebook page (@
The plow photo that receives the most “Reactions” between October 12, 2018 and noon, October 19, 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 are on display at the Crawford County PennDOT facility on Smock Highway in Vernon 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.
