Vote for LH on Paint the Plow

Online Voting Open for Paint the Plow Program in District 12


Uniontown, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) District 12 invites the public to vote on 10 plows decorated by high school students in Fayette, Greene, and Westmoreland counties as part of the annual Paint the Plow program. Paint the Plow is a statewide outreach aimed at promoting winter driving safety and fostering appreciation for high school art programs and student creativity.


Earlier this year, PennDOT invited students from the southwest county Region to paint plow blades based on the statewide theme “Seat belts are always in season,” The theme was chosen to remind motorists that seat belts save lives and should be worn year-round.


Students from Albert Gallatin, Fayette CTI, Frazier, Greater Latrobe, Greensburg Central Catholic, Kiski Area, Laurel Highlands, Penn-Trafford, West Greene, and Yough High Schools participated.


This year, the public is invited to vote through an online survey posted on the PennDOT website The voting form can be found by clicking on the county names within the table.


Additional Paint the Plow art programs were held throughout the state and the public may vote on their favorite from each participating district. Participation is limited to one vote per person per district.


The plow photo in each district that receives the most votes between January 8 and January 15, 2024, will be deemed the “Fan Favorite” for that area. Along with the “Fan Favorite” award, the blades are also eligible for the “Judges’ Pick” honor that will be determined by PennDOT personnel.


The winner in each category will be announced in connection with Winter Driving Safety Awareness Week on January 21 to 27, 2024.


Schools and participants are encouraged to share the link to the contest to promote voting. PennDOT may post the pictures on statewide and regional Facebook accounts, however responses on social media will not count toward the voting totals.
