(Cochrane, AB) – Cochrane is taking winter head-on with the latest additions to its snow removal fleet! To make this a memorable moment, we're calling on our community to join in the fun and celebrate this exciting news.

Calling All Creative Minds

We have challenged our grade three students to unleash their creativity by proposing the perfect names for not one, but four crucial snow plows, including our brand-new additions and a dedicated street sweeper.

But we're not stopping there — Cochrane residents, you're invited too! We want you to be part of the action by voting for your favorite names once our young visionaries submit their ideas. After all, community involvement is what makes Cochrane so exceptional.

Community-Powered Choices

 The names suggested by our young thinkers will be carefully reviewed by our dedicated Administration. They'll consider factors like creativity, popularity and how well the names capture the unique spirit of Cochrane. Then, the cream of the crop will be put up for public voting.

"The winning names, chosen by the vibrant Cochrane community, will adorn the sides of our real snow plows, showcasing the creativity and unity that defines our town," says  Drew Hyndman, Executive Director Development & Infrastructure Services, Town of Cochrane. "But this contest isn't just about fun and games. It's a chance to spark essential conversations about winter safety and educate everyone on our top-notch snow removal services."

Get in on the Action

Following the judging process, we'll announce the finalists, marking the start of the public voting period from October 23 to November 6, 2023.
