In 2021, the city’s first-ever snowplow naming contest saw more than 200 entries. The contest was open to Boulder elementary-age students, and magnets with the winning names, such as Darth Blader and Super Scooper, were featured on 10 city snowplows last winter.

“Naming the city’s snowplows is a fun way to engage younger community members with city services,” said City of Boulder Business Services Supervisor Rene Lopez. “We saw strong participation in this program last year and are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity once again.”
