Here’s How to Submit Names for MnDOTs 3rd Annual Name A Snowplow Contest
It's hard to believe, but once again the calendar has rolled around to an event we all love to laugh with and at, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) Name A Snowplow Contest!
Don't let Betty Whiteout be alone on the road, let's keep Plowy McPlowFace from getting too big an ego, and I think we all know Ctrl Salt Delete could use a friend.
How Do You Enter A Name in MnDOT's Name A Snowplow Contest?
Fast. That's how you enter a name...because the submissions are only open thru midnight on Friday, Dec. 16, 2022.
There are some rules, we'll get to those in a minute.
Once submissions close, MnDOT staff "will review all the submissions, select some of the best ideas, and invite the public to vote on their favorites in January 2023." As usual, the eight names with the most votes will end up on a snowplow in each of MnDOT's 8 districts.
Some Basic Rules to Name a MnDOT Snowplow
- Each person may only submit one name.
- Submissions are limited to no more than 30 characters (including letters and spaces).
- Gosh darn it, nothing vulgar, please. Any submissions that include profanity or, other inappropriate language, will not be considered.
- Politically inspired names (including phrases, slogans or plays on politicians’ names) will not be considered. Naming snowplows is meant to be fun and lighthearted, so we’re going to keep this contest nonpartisan and nonpolitical.
- Past winning names will not be considered.
