'Name the Plow' winners announced
The first ever “Name the Plow” contest – hosted by the North Dakota Department of Transportation – attracted 856 entries.
Here are the winners:
-Bismarck District: Darth Blader
-Devils Lake District: Blizzard Wizard
-Dickinson District: Plowasaurus Rex
-Fargo District: Below Zero Hero
-Grand Forks District: Storming Norman
-Minot District: Truck Norris
-Valley City District: Orange Thunder
-Williston District: Plowzilla
The winners will get the opportunity to meet the snowplow driver, and the plows will have the names displayed.
"The most important part of this project was to remind North Dakotans to drive carefully this winter," said DOT spokesperson Gabrielle Glass. "They need to keep a look out for snow plows, and drive cautiously around snow plows."
Glass said plans are to make this an annual contest.
