Paint Evanston Plows Contest

The City of Evanston invited District 65 classes to paint murals on the blades of its snow plows for its annual Paint Evanston Plows (PEP) contest.

A few of the City's snow plows will be looking particularly festive in preparation for the coming winter season thanks to teachers and students who participated in the 10th annual Paint Evanston Plows Contest! Students were encouraged to depict school, city, holiday or winter spirit through this year’s theme, “Think Outside the Bag.”

DID YOU KNOW? The City annually sends out its snow plow blades to be painted, so the snow will come off the blade easier. PEP helps the City save money, since the City only pays for the paints, and not the artistic labor. The City will add some clear coat on designs so they will last longer to be admired by the community throughout the snow season.
