Voting opened Monday for the best student-created design on PennDOT snowplow blades this winter.

Eight finalists from high schools in the department’s four-county District 12 area are vying for votes in the Paint the Plow contest. The theme this year is “Don’t Rush in Ice and Slush.”

Students from the following schools have entries in the contest: Beth Center, Canon-McMillan, Connellsville Area Career & Technical School, Jeannette City, Laurel Highlands, Trinity, West Greene and Yough. The design that gets the most votes by Sunday night will be the fan favorite, according to PennDOT.

The entries will be up for a judge’s pick which will be selected by agency employees.

Voting is open online at surveymonkey.com/r/D12PlowTest.

The program started during the 2015-16 winter season in Cambria County and has since spread across the state. Schools in Westmoreland County participated in the contest in 2017 and 2018. Yough is the reigning champion, winning last year’s fan favorite contest and tying with Greater Latrobe for the judge’s pick.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
