The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has revealed the 50 finalists in its "Name a Snowplow" contest.

MnDOT said staff and leadership selected the finalists out of roughly 24,000 entries. The "judges" tried to focus on names that were submitted frequently, understandable to a wide audience or were particularly creative or Minnesota-centric.
