INDOT_Paint the PlowThe Indiana Department of Transportation announces the kick off of its 2017 Paint the Plow campaign, a community outreach program designed to promote safety and awareness of INDOT’s Winter Operations all year long.

INDOT LaPorte District invites high schools within district boundaries to paint an INDOT snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their school. Applications and additional program details can be found 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 Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Saint Joseph, Newton, Jasper, Starke, Marshall, Pulaski, Fulton, White, Cass and Carroll Counties.

Only students who are currently enrolled in the applicant school may participate in the creation, execution and completion of the art project.
