 A few of the city’s snow plows will be looking particularly festive in preparation for the coming winter season, thanks to some teachers and students in nine schools in Evanston as part of the city’s Paint Evanston Plows Contest (P.E.P). The City of Evanston’s Sixth Annual Paint Evanston Plows Contest is now open through November 8th at 5 p.m. 

The City of Evanston Streets and Sanitation Division annually invites all public and private schools in Evanston to paint murals on the blades of its snow plows for its annual Painting Evanston’s Plows Contest. The Division dropped off a plow blade and paint kits at each of the participating schools and encouraged the classes to show school spirit, city spirit, holiday spirit or winter spirit. This year’s theme is “Compost the Most,”- Leaves, Grass, Brush. Children are encouraged to show school spirit, city spirit, holiday spirit and/or winter spirit in conjunction with this year’s theme.

Mayor Elizabeth Tisdahl will present the different winners with plaques at the November 14th City Council meeting in the following categories: Category 1: Best “Theme” Spirit: This plaque will be presented to the snow plow that best represents the “Compost the Most” theme; Category 2: Evanstonian’s Choice: This plaque will be presented based on the number of votes the plow receives from the public. The plows will be placed on display for five days in front of the Civic Center; and Category 3: Mayor’s Choice: This plaque will be presented based on the Mayor’s choice(s).

The following schools are participating in the contest: St. Athanasius, Orrington, Roycemore, Lincolnwood, Haven, Dawes, Nichols, Chute and Kingsley.
