A local high school has come away as a winner in a statewide contest. Wauseon High School has been selected as a winner in the Ohio Department of Transportation’s District 2 Paint the Plow contest.
Sixteen high schools from Williams, Fulton, Henry, Lucas, Sandusky, Seneca, and Wood counties participated in this year’s contest, which was originally developed by ODOT to teach students to become more involved in local communities, increase awareness of the department’s ice and snow operations and promote safety. Each school received a clean, black snowplow blade on which to paint their original design. Winners were chosen for Best Community Spirit and Best Ice and Snow Theme.
Wauseon High School will receive a $250 courtesy of the Northwest Branch of the Ohio chapter of the American Public Works Association. Marco’s Pizza will also supply the school with 50 pizzas.
