In preparation for the winter season, the City of Duvall is excited to announce a collaborative initiative that aims to engage the creativity and imagination of our youngest community members in its inaugural Snowplow Naming Contest.
“This contest is a great way to celebrate the winter season in Duvall and the Snoqualmie Valley, encourage the creativity of our young people, and to show appreciation to dedicated members of our public works crew who keep our roads and bridges cleared during severe weather,” said Duvall Mayor Amy Ockerlander. “This also helps us spread the word on how to important these vehicles are to keeping our important road connections open and ready for our residents to get around safely.”
Area students from kindergarten to fifth grade are invited to participate in the snowplow naming contest that encourages students to submit their most creative and unique names for the city snowplow. Students also have the option to submit a logo drawing with the name. Parents, teachers, and community members can support and inspire students in this creative endeavor.
“We believe that involving our students in initiatives like the Snowplow Naming Contest fosters a sense of pride and ownership in our community,” said Meisha Roberston, Director of Business and Operations of the Riverview School District. “It’s also a fantastic way for students to learn about the important services provided by the city and how they play a role in keeping our community safe.”
A panel of judges from the City of Duvall and Riverview School District will carefully review all entries and select the most imaginative and fitting names for the snowplow. Entries will be accepted from Friday, December 15th, and the winner will be announced on Monday, January 8th. The winner will not only have the honor of naming a snowplow but will also be recognized at a special ceremony where they will receive a special winter prize package to enjoy the snowy season.
To participate, students can obtain entry forms from their respective schools or visit the City of Duvall website at www.DuvallWa.gov.
