Voting opens for new Minnesota snowplow names

The latest local, regional and national news events of the day are presented by the ABC 6 News Team, along with updated sports, weather and traffic.

(ABC 6 News) – MnDOT has narrowed down 8,000 snowplow name submissions, and now you can vote for your favorite of the top 50.

The top eight will become new snowplot names — one for each district in Minnesota.

Voting is open through Sunday, Jan. 28. Voters can participate once, and select up to eight favorites.

The winning names will be announced in late January.

The department of transportation has held the Name a Snowplow contest four times, and named 24 plows after the most popular submissions.

Through previous contests, MnDOT staff have also helped to name three additional snowplows: Giiwedin-The North Wind; Goonodaabaan-Snow Vehicle (both Ojibwe); and Icamna-Blizzard (Dakota) in acknowledgement of the highways the state plows adjacent to tribal lands.
