PEP Awards. Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl presented awards and certificates of recognition to students in the Paint Evanston’s Plows contest. Held for the third consecutive year, the contest allows elementary-school students to use protective paints to decorate the City’s snow plows. This year’s theme was recycling. The plow painted by students at St. Athanasius received the most on-line votes to win the People’s Choice award. Students at Dewey School painted the plow (pictured in aRound Town) that won the Mayor’s award.
