Class artists given chance for unique canvas — snowplow blades

th-1Some Kitsap County kids will be disappointed if it doesn’t snow next winter, and it won’t be just because they don’t get to skip school.

As part of the annual National Public Works Week celebration (May 17-23), Kitsap County Public Works has announced a contest to select three classrooms to paint the blades of snowplows used in snow and ice removal operations. The contest is open to classrooms at all levels.

Public Works will provide the paint and brushes, and arrange delivery and pick up of the plow blade with the selected schools. The  blades are 12 feet long and about 3 feet high.

Applications and photos of last year’s entrants are available at http://kitsapgov.com/press/2015/NR15-040.htm.
