‘Scoop Dog’ Wins Connecticut DOT’s Inaugural ‘Name The Snow Plow’ Contest

Newington, CT — The Connecticut Department of Transportation (CTDOT) announced today the four winning names from its inaugural “Name the Snowplow” contest.

CTDOT received nearly 1,700 entries from Connecticut residents and the staff participated by voting for the top 20 names.


Once those 20 names were selected, the public voted to choose their four favorites.

The winning names are:

1) Scoop Dogg,
2) Husky McSalty,
3) Buzz Iceclear, and
4) Plowzilla

“The Name the Snowplow contest was a new way for the DOT to connect and engage with residents across the state. I appreciate the creativity, enthusiasm, and fun residents had with our first-ever snowplow naming contest,” said CTDOT Commissioner Joseph Giulietti. “These newly named snowplows will be traveling throughout the state. As always, keep yourselves and our drivers safe – don’t crowd the plow.”


The four winning names were selected to represent the four CTDOT maintenance districts in the state.

The snowplow names will be displayed on the front sides of four CTDOT tandem axle Tow Plows that have the 26-feet plowable width.
