Voting now open for MnDOT’s “Name a Snowplow” contest

Voting is now open for MnDOT’s “Name a Snowplow” contest.

Fifty finalists were selected by MnDOT staffers, and surprisingly, none had any Prince references.

Some finalists from last year are included on this year’s list, including the Ojibwe word for “north wind,” Giiwedin.

The rest of the punny snowplow names can be found online and voters can select eight of their favorites.

In early February, the finalists will be announced.

Each of the eight winning names will be assigned to snowplows in eight of MnDOT’s districts.

Northwest Minnesota is in MnDOT District 2.
