Paint Evanston Plows Contest
The City of Evanston Streets and Sanitation Division invited District 65 classes to paint murals on the blades of its snow plows for its annual Painting Evanston's Plows (P.E.P) contest.
A few of the City's snow plows will be looking particularly festive in preparation for the coming winter season, thanks to some teachers and students in 7 schools in Evanston. The Division dropped off a plow blade and paint kit at each school and encouraged the classes to show school spirit, city spirit, holiday spirit or winter spirit.
The children's finished snowplow murals are on display in front of the Evanston Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.

DID YOU KNOW? The City annually sends out its snow plow blades to be painted, so the snow will come off the blade easier. P.E.P. 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.
