The Warminster Township Public Works Department is happy to announce the first annual “Paint-the-Plow” program in the Warminster Township Community.
“Paint-the-Plow” is a community outreach program in which students from local schools are invited to paint a Warminster Township snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their individual school.
In addition to being visible when in service during the winter months, the blades may be used at events within the school’s community to enhance public awareness, promote safety, and foster a greater appreciation of both Public Works operations and the school’s art program.
A panel of judges comprised of Warminster Township Public Works and Parks & Recreation staff will participate in selecting a “Judge’s Pick” winner at the annual “Touch-a-Truck” event on October 28, 2017. The winning school’s plow will be judged on its creativity, while following the selected theme for that year. The Paint-the-Plow theme for 2017 will be “School Pride”. Future themes may include; “Snow Day”, “Don’t Crowd the Plow”, “Don’t Text and Drive”, and more.
Photos of each painted plow will be posted on Facebook (www.facebook.com/warminstertownship), and also our website (www.warminstertownship.org) where users will have the opportunity to vote for a “Fan Favorite”. Voting will be open to the public for a designated voting period. Participants are encouraged to look out for a press release announcing the start of the voting period.
For the first annual Paint-the-Plow program in 2017, the following schools have requested plows to participate in the program:
• William Tennent High School
• Archbishop Wood High School
• Log College Middle School
• Klinger Middle School
• Nativity of Our Lord School
The “Judges Pick” winner will be awarded a plaque as well as a $500.00 contribution to the winning school’s art department to be made on behalf of Warminster Township.
