FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. -- Snowplows in the City of Flagstaff are sporting a new look thanks to some local schools.

The paint-a-plow idea came from heavy machine operator for the city, Scott Goodwin.

"I'm a retired police officer and one thing that I learned in my police career is that, if you want to establish new community partnerships and relationships, one of the best ways to do it is to start with the next generation," he said.

Goodwin enlisted the help from local schools and they were on board with the plan. From mountain scenes, to animals, to a set of huge blue eyes, the children let their creativity flow. As a result, six city snowplows were transformed into rolling, multi-ton works of art.

As the snow comes, and the plows do their duty, the artwork fades away, but this is a special program Goodwin said Flagstaff will continue in years to come.
