STAFF PHOTO/ROBERT BAKER Recently showing off the work of art students at Tunkhannock Area High School are, from left, teacher Lance Montross, Principal Todd Bosscher, students Jordana Bach and Rebecca Sweigart, and PennDOT workers Brad Bennett and Angela Miller.

Every year, PennDOT holds a paint the plow contest. Schools from the various PennDOT districts paint a design on one of their plows to go along with the year’s theme.

The theme this year was “Know Before You Go.” Artists Jordana Bach and Rebecca Sweigart designed and painted the plow.

Their idea was to do something more resembling northeastern Pennsylvania rather than the typical school logo’s style designs that most other schools seemed to do. They wanted it to be a work of art rather than a gimmick.

They put many long hours of hard work into their painting, and the result is beautiful. PennDOT will use the plows within the schools’ counties throughout the winter.
