You can now name a snowplow in Chicago!
Chicago is on the lookout for a bundle of names that will give character to its snowplows throughout the season.
Dubbed "You Name a Snowplow," the new contest invites city residents to use their "ingenuity and imagination" to offer up names for six machines, one for each of Chicago's snow districts.
Those looking to participate can toss one name, which must be less than 50 characters, into the pool for consideration on the city's website.
Submissions will be accepted until the city reels in 20,000 potential names, or Jan. 6, 2023, whichever comes first.
The city's Department of Streets and Sanitation staff will select 50 finalists, and residents can vote for their favorites from Jan. 15-31, 2023.
The six names with the most votes will then be featured on the snowplows. Residents will be able to view the named snowplows, along with the city’s full snow fleet, in real-time through the plow tracker.
Can't wait to see the creativity.
