Some students, family and friends stopped by the City Garage in Morgantown Friday night to check out some unique snow plows.
If you've seen not so normal plows on trucks in Morgantown, that's because area students had a chance to get creative. Every other year for the last six years, more and more schools have been getting involved. The assistant public works director started a program back in 2006, which gives the plows to schools so students can paint them as they wish. They started with about four schools and this year they had 10 participate.
Teachers said it's a great bonding experience for the middle and high schoolers who are able to leave their mark on something that's in the real world. It's obvious the kids get something out of it.
"I was impressed with the kids that came out. The student that I had brought her parents, and her grandparents, and her cousin and her aunt. So it shows how much she really enjoyed the project and how much she wanted to show it off," said Johanna Carr, an art teacher at South MIddle School.
The kids have to be extra careful with the projects, because oil-based paints do a great job at staining hands and clothes. Teachers hope that they'll be able to start doing this every year.
