More than 1000 Cochranites voted and the results are in.
The town is excited to reveal the chosen names for four snowplows, which include a new addition, along with a specialized street sweeper.
“This contest goes beyond celebrating a new snow plow,” said Drew Hyndman, Executive Director, Development & Infrastructure Services. “It provided us with a unique opportunity to educate our community on our snow removal service levels and promote winter safety. Cochrane's crews work tirelessly, often through the night, to help people get to where they need to go safely. This contest is the best of both worlds – fun and educational – taking a moment to celebrate while strengthening the connection between the community and essential services.”
Grade three students in Cochrane came up with a list of names before residents had the opportunity to vote between November 6-27th.
The schools contributed approximately 50 creative names for review and consideration.
The winning names are:
• Plow Chica Plow Plow (Submitted by RancheView)
• Ctrl + Salt + Delete (Submitted by RancheView )
• Sleetwood Mac (Submitted by RancheView )
• Plowy McPlowface (Submitted by Glenbow/Westbrook)
• Sweeping Beauty (street sweeper name) (Submitted by RancheView )
“We extend our gratitude to all who participated, including the enthusiastic grade three students who infused their creativity into this naming contest,” added Hyndman. “Your engagement has not only enlivened our snow clearing fleet, but also reinforced the sense of community that makes Cochrane a special place to call home. ”
