Kitsap County Public Works seeks a new look for snow plow blades next winter!
School classrooms have the opportunity to paint the snow plow blades used next winter

(Port Orchard, WA) - Kitsap County Public Works is looking for artistic flair on three snow plow blades for next winter. As part of the annual National Public Works Week celebration (May 19-26) they have announced a contest to select three classrooms to paint the blades of snowplows used in snow and ice removal operations. “This is a great opportunity for students to display their artwork on a uniquely mobile medium,” said Doug Bear, County Public Communication Manager.

The contest is open to classrooms at all levels. Applications (see link below) are available online. Public Works provides the paint and brushes, and arranges delivery and pickup of the plow blade with the selected schools The plow blades are 12' long and about 3' high. Once the plow blades are painted crews from Public Works will use them during this winter’s snow and ice response. Follow the links below for samples of the artwork displayed on snow plow blades in other jurisdictions.
