High Schools To Participate in INDOT’s Paint The Plow


The 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 Southwest has invited 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 at http://www.in.gov/indot/3427.htm

Paint the Plow is open to all high schools, Sullivan, Greene, Lawrence, Martin, Daviess, Knox, Gibson, Pike, Dubois, Orange, Crawford, Perry, Spencer, Warrick, Vanderburgh and Posey counties.

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 was piloted in 2016 in INDOT’s Fort Wayne District. The program saw 13 plows completed by 12 school districts. After the success of Paint the Plow in the northeast district, the program was embarked on statewide.

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

Applications are due March 15.
