Paint the Plow Deadline Extended

INDOT Fort Wayne accepting applications through April 30

The Indiana Department of Transportation announces the Paint the Plow deadline has been extended to April 30. Paint the Plow, a community outreach campaign, is designed to promote safety and awareness of INDOT’s Winter Operations all year long.

INDOT Fort Wayne District invites high school, career technical schools and colleges within district boundaries to paint an INDOT snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their school. Nearly 10 schools have signed up to Paint the Plow already, and more schools are encouraged to apply. 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 program.

Paint the Plow is open to all high schools, career-technical schools and colleges in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Elkhart, Grant, Huntington, Kosciusko, LaGrange, Miami, Noble, Steuben, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties. Consideration will also be given to schools in Blackford, Fulton, and Jay counties, as portions of these counties are located within the district boundaries. Only students who are currently enrolled in the applicant school may participate in the creation, execution and completion of the art project.
