Snow plows operated by the Washtenaw County Road Commission will be a bit more decorative this winter.
Art students from seven schools in the county were provided with a plow to paint as they please. Students from Ypsilanti Community High School decorated their plow with a grizzly bear and trees covered with snow.
Sophomore Monajha Brown helped with the project.
"Yeah, it most definitely motivates me because I can see the bigger picture now of things that I can do. Instead of writing on a blank piece of paper, I can do more than that, have a bigger platform," said Brown.
This is the first year the road commission offered the Paint-a-Plow program.
