Twenty new plows added to COlorado’s fleet have just been named by elementary school kids.

The first-ever Name That Plow Contest sponsored by the Colorado Department of Transportation and Governor Jared Polis is now complete, and the winners have been revealed.

“The creativity of Colorado’s kids shines through in this great group of names and we’re appreciative to all who offered their ideas in this first-ever contest. When these plows and their drivers are hard at work in the years to come, we will all be able to keep track of their efforts on, or check for the name on the door the next time you see a CDOT plow on the road.”

– Colorado Governor Jared Polis

Thanks to the creative ideas of Colorado kids across the state, twenty new plows in the CDOT fleet will receive names as part of the inaugural ‘Name That Plow’ contest. Those twenty winning names, chosen from more than 1,100 entries, are as follows:
