FLEMINGSBURG, Ky. — The Kentucky Department of Highways is inviting high school students in the northeastern part of the state to paint snow plow blades in a new initiative aimed at promoting learning and safety.
The highway department’s District 9 says in a statement that schools must get the agency’s approval to participate, and then the local maintenance facility will drop off a plow blade for students to paint. The statement says artists are encouraged to paint themes that include traffic safety and winter weather.
Once painted, the blades will be attached to snow plows and used on roads throughout the winter season to enhance community pride and urge roadway safety.
The program is open to high schools in the following counties: Bath, Boyd, Carter, Elliott, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Nicholas and Rowan.
