(ABC 6 News) – Calling all creative minds, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is again looking for names for snowplows in each district across the state.

This year’s contest has a few rules:

  • Each person may submit up to three names.
  • Each submission is limited to a maximum of 30 characters.
  • Previous winning names will not be considered. Additionally, any politically inspired names (including phrases, slogans, or plays on politicians’ names) or names including profanity or inappropriate language will be excluded. This contest is intended to be fun, lighthearted, family-friendly and non-political.

Snowplow names can be submitted on the MnDOT website.

The submission form will be open through midnight on Dec. 15, 2021.

MnDOT staff will review all name submissions, select some of the best name ideas, and invite the public to vote on their favorites in January 2022. The eight names that get the most votes will then make their way onto a snowplow in each district!

  • Ope, Just Gonna Plow Right Past Ya – District 4
  • Duck Duck Orange Truck – District 1
  • Plow Bunyan – District 2
