JACKSONTOWN – For the second year in a row, Sheridan High School was voted plow painting champions.
Sheridan won the people’s choice award, which was decided based on social media votes on ODOT District 5’s Facebook page. Sheridan garnered 728 votes, followed by Mt. Pleasant Elementary (Fairfield County) and Adamsville Elementary (Muskingum County). Mt. Pleasant received 411 votes, and in third place, Adamsville Elementary totaled 336 votes.
Sheridan was also voted the overall ODOT choice award winner. Employees at ODOT District 5 voted for the best plow design. All 15 plows from across the District will be on display at the District 5 headquarters in Jacksontown.
The Paint the Plow program is a great way for local schools to show their community pride. It allows high schools and vocational schools within the district’s seven-county region to paint an ODOT snowplow blade with a message of school spirit, Ohio pride, patriotism or safety.
This year, 14 schools across six of the seven counties in District 5 painted a plow blade for the contest.
Schools who participated include Adamsville Elementary, Amanda Clearcreek High School, Buckeye Trail High School Art and FFA, Cambridge High School, Cambridge Pre-School, Danville High School, Johnstown High School, Lancaster High School, Licking Valley High School, Meadowbrook High School, Mt. Pleasant Elementary, Northridge High School, Sheridan High School, and Utica High School.
