The artwork of students at Saint Joseph's Catholic Academy in Boalsburg was selected as the "Fan Favorite" in PennDOT District 2's "Paint the Plow" contest.

Saint Joseph's was picked as the Fan Facorite through Facebook, with users "likes" on photos on PennDOT's Paint the Plow page determining the vote. Harmony High School is Clearfield County was chosen by a panel of judges as the overall winner.

"As we head into winter, our Paint the Plow contest is a very special event for us", said District Executive Karen Michael. "The artwork is impressive and it's a real pleasure to see area students participate with so much excitement and enthusiasm."

This is the second year District 2 has held the Paint the Plow contest, which is also held in PennDOT's other districts. All high schools in Centre, Clearfield, Juniata and Mifflin County were invited to participate. Six schools in three counties chose to take part.

In Centre County, in addition to Saint Joseph's, Bellefonte Area and Bald Eagle Area also participated. Clearfield and East Juniata painted plows as well.

Plows were delivered to the schools in September and students worked on them through October, painting them to the theme of "Ice and snow, take it slow.”

The plows will be mounted to trucks in the areas of the respective school districts for the upcoming winter season. District 2 plans to offer the contest across all nine counties in its district area in 2018.
