This year's Paint a Plow program is going on with 23 teams submitting their designs to the District 1 garage. This is the 6th year for the program and it the most people ODOT has ever had. This year has high school art classes, FFA clubs, career vocational centers, and more. The topic of paintings were pretty open-ended but could honor their school, Ohio pride, safety or other topics. ODOT employees will vote on their favorite while there is also a popular vote going on, on Facebook.
