Colorful works of art will grace the blades of snow plows in Ohio this winter thanks to some students in Mahoning County.
Students from South Range High School in Canfield participated in the “Paint a Plow” contest and were charged with transforming the dull metal of an ODOT District 4 plow blade into a work of art.
The trucks and plows will be showcased during District 4’s Truck and Loader Rodeo set for Wednesday at Dix Stadium parking lot, Summit Road in Kent.
The rodeo is a series of tests and a driving course that consists of several maneuvers to measure the skill level of participating highway technicians to reinforce safe driving practices.
An awards ceremony to recognize the students will be held during the rodeo.
Other Northeast Ohio schools participating in the “Paint the Plow” program include Conneaut High School, Field High School and Mogadore High School.
The students from South Range High School who painted the plow in the image above are:
- Curtis Schaffer, senior
- Mayim Moore, senior
- Danielle Taylor, senior
- Joey Phillips, junior
- Alec Marinelli, sophmore
