INDOT invites students to ‘Paint the Plow’

The Indiana Department of Transportation is inviting students in the southeast district to promote safety and school spirit by coming up with a design for a snowplow blade.

INDOT will provide the 1,000-pound snowplow blades, and student artists are invited to paint them on the 12-foot-by-4-foot pre-primed metal. The plow blades will be on exhibit at community events in the summer and fall, and then will be used on snow routes next winter.

The project is open to all high schools within INDOT’s southeast district, including those in Jackson, Bartholomew, Brown and Jennings counties.

High school art teachers in the district have received application forms.

For those teachers who have not received the information, email SEcommunications@indot.in.gov or call INDOT spokesman Harry Maginity at 317-468-3190.
