Third Annual NDOT Name A Snowplow Contest

The Nebraska Department of Transportation would again like to invite each of your students in grades kindergarten through fifth grade to participate in the third annual Name A Snowplow contest. The Name A Snowplow contest kicks off NDOT’s annual winter operations season and is a great way for students to learn more about winter safety in Nebraska.


Similarly, to last year, NDOT will select 16 names from across the state to be chosen as winners. The winning names will be branded on selected plows in the district from where the student is from. To learn more about which district your school is in, click here.


Each winning student will receive a mini snowplow with their winning name branded on it, a commemorative sign and a commemorative sign for the school.


Submissions can be made by clicking here and are due no later than 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 20.
