Paint The Plow

About the Program

The Paint the Plow program allows local schools and non-profit organizations to paint an ODOT snowplow blade with messages of snow and ice safety, state, school, or community pride, or patriotism. Messages and designs must be tasteful and contain no political or partisan messages. Participation in the program is free of charge.

Each ODOT district manages its own Paint the Plow contest, typically hosting them in either the spring or the fall. Each district also has its own participation, submission, and voting rules. To find your local ODOT district and local contacts, refer to the drop-down menu below.
