MARIETTA, Ohio — Athens County students’s art can be seen this winter season as the snow falls.

Groups put their artistic touch on Ohio Department of Transportation snow plows as part of the Paint-the-Plow program.

Students at Athens High School, Alexander High School, Nelsonville-York High School, Trimble High School, and the Tri-County Career Center recently painted the plows.

Photos of the painted plows are on the ODOT Southeastern Ohio District 10 Facebook page. People can vote for their favorite plow by liking it. The voting lasts until December 12.

The program is a community outreach program in which students are invited to paint an ODOT snow plow with original artwork to represent their individual school.

In addition to being visible when in service during the winter, the plows will be used at events within the school’s community to enhance public awareness of ODOT, art programs and promote safety.
