FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The Indiana Department of Transportation has kicked off of its new Paint the Plow campaign, a community outreach program designed to promote safety and awareness of INDOT’s Winter Operations all year long.
INDOT’s Fort Wayne District is inviting high school art classes and programs within district boundaries to paint an INDOT snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their school. You can find more info on the program here.
In addition to being seen in full service during the winter weather months, the blades may be used at events within the school’s community to enhance public awareness, promote safety and foster greater appreciation of both INDOT and the school’s art program.
Paint the Plow is open to all high schools and career-technical schools in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Elkhart, Grant, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Miami, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties. Consideration will also be given to schools in Blackford, Fulton, and Jay counties, as portions of these counties are located within the district boundaries.
Only students who are currently enrolled in the applicant school may participate in the creation, execution and completion of the art project.
