After plowing through nearly 60,000 votes, the Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced the winners of its second “Name a Snowplow” contest. One newly named snowplow will be assigned to each of MnDOT’s eight districts later this month.
In District 6, which covers SE Minnesota, Edward Blizzardhands won and was the top vote getter overall.
The agency invited people to submit creative ideas for snowplow names in December 2021.
After receiving more than 22,000 name ideas, MnDOT staff narrowed down the list and selected 50 finalists for the public to vote on.
