Paint the Plow 2024

Thanks for your interest in participating in Montgomery County’s third annual Paint the Plow contest. Montgomery County is working with local middle schools to paint and name our county’s snow plows.  Each participating school and plow will be judged on unique name, creativity, and neatness on Saturday, May 18, Truck Day, which kicks off Public Works Week.
WE SUPPLY the paint and the plow.  YOU SUPPLY the parking spot and the artistic talent.  You will have over one school week to complete your masterpiece.
