​Paint the Plow


The Paint the Plow Program is a way for PennDOT and local communities to cultivate public awareness and promote winter driving safety on state roadways.

This year, participating high school students will have a chance to demonstrate their creativity by designing and creating original artwork on a snowplow that showcases the 2022 theme Put Down the Device in Snow and Ice.  As schools work to move out of virtual and hybrid learning environments, this year's art project is a way for everyone to celebrate their communities.


The Paint the Plow program is divided by county and organized by region. To find specified information for your area visit your region's page.


This year's program will give the public the opportunity to vote on their favorite plow through an online form that will be available throughout the fall and winter for each PennDOT engineering district.  All schools that are interested in having their artwork featured on PennDOT's social media channels should contact their local coordinator for instructions on how to do so.
