On Friday, the Massachusetts Department of Transportation announced the winners of their first “Name a Snowplow” contest. School kids were invited to submit suggestions to represent their elementary and middle school classrooms.

Here are the 12 Names Chosen – including one from our own Condon School!

The winners are:

  • Blizzard of Oz – South Boston’s James F. Condon School, 5th grade 
  • Sherlock Snowmes – Somerville’s John F. Kennedy School, 4th grade
  • Snow Big Deal – Malden’s TEC Connections Academy Online School, 5th grade
  • Sled Zeppelin – Shelburne Falls’ Buckland-Shelburne Elementary School, 6th grade

Each winner’s classroom will receive a $100 gift card for school supplies and get a visit from the MassDOT snowplow vehicle with the winning name on it!  How cool is that!

With names like Sled Zeppelin and Snow Time to Lose, it makes getting two feet of snow a little more fun, right?
