Paint The Plow

Get ready to unleash your inner artist in the Snow T.O. Paint the Plow contest!

If you’re a Toronto student in Grades 1-12, and you’ve got a knack for creativity and a passion for winter, this contest is for you! Design and submit your original illustration of a snowy scene, and we might just bring it to life on a real snowplow!

We’ll be crowning one winner from each of the following Grade categories: 1-6 and 7-12.

The winner from each category will take home $500!


If you know someone who’s got the artistic touch, give them a nudge – whether it’s a friend, family member, or fellow student!
