Forbes Road FFA Chapter had a beautiful day for its annual tractor driving contest that took place at the school on April 16. Keith Clugston of Landmark Equipment and Kirby Shoemaker were the judges. Clugston also brought the tractor. The students had to drive and back up the tractor while being attached to a four-wheeled wagon, and they also took a test on tractor driving safety. Most of the students said they had the most difficulty pulling the tractor out of a stall and backing it into another one while being attached to a gravity bin four-heeled wagon.

Evan Brant placed first; Cody Buterbaugh second; Logan Fraker third; David Englert fourth; and Wyatt Fix fifth. Austin Elliot, Shelby Brant, Jordan Schetrompf, Brad Swope, Shane Seville, Aaron Seville and David Martz also participated.
