The third time was a charm for Butler County Area Vocational-Technical School students who participated in the PennDOT Paint a Plow competition.
The school received the Judge's Pick award in the state Department of Transportation District 10 competition, which saw students from various schools in Butler, Armstrong, Clarion, Jefferson and Indiana counties adorn District 10 snowplow blades to the theme “Don't Rush in Ice and Slush.”
Vo-tech students also topped the judge's pick in 2018 and 2017.
The 10 PennDOT employees who voted on the plows also awarded St. Luke's Lutheran School in Jefferson Township an honorable mention for its plow paint job.
The new Fan Favorite award, determined by online voting, went to United High School in Indiana County.
Leechburg Area High School in Armstrong County took home honorable mention in the same category.
During the snowy season, PennDOT trucks will use the plows to clear snow and ice from state roads in the district.
The St. Luke students who painted the plow are Micah Bish, Alicyn Rhodes, Mia McGrady and Katie McCoy.
The names of the students who worked on the vo-tech plow were not available Tuesday.
