The second half of the winter season is here and the winners of the 2023 Edmonton Name A Plow Contest have finally been announced!

As many of you may recall, the city asked its residents to share their best and punniest names in hopes of giving Edmonton’s snow plows a little more character – but not all were selected!

While there were over 2,100 entries in total, only 15 were chosen and we cannot wait to see them hit the streets.
