Delaware Department of Transportation announces first Name That Plow contest

Posted

DOVER — As the winter season approaches, the Delaware Department of Transportation is launching its inaugural Name That Plow contest for elementary school (K-5) students across the state.

“Our snowplow operators and technicians work hard throughout the winter season to keep our roads clear and equipment running during winter storm events,” said Secretary of Transportation Nicole Majeski.

“This is an opportunity for our elementary school students to help us recognize their efforts and see their winning name on one of our trucks for the upcoming winter season.”

Entries will be accepted via email until 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 13, at dotpublic@delaware.gov, and should include the suggested name limited to one to two words, student and teacher’s name, and school name.

One winner from each county will be selected. A snowplow will visit the winners’ schools for a photo and demonstration of how the plows operate.

DelDOT has more than 300 pieces of snow removal equipment statewide and is responsible for treating and plowing almost 14,000 lane miles of roadway.
