Parkwood High School FFA Team Winners
The Parkwood FFA (Future Farmers of America) attended the Union County Tractor Driving Contest on December 3rd, 2012. The purpose of this event was to develop the ability to safely drive a tractor with a trailer attatched. This competition tested the student’s ability to back a tractor and a truck. Safety was stressed throughout this contest. The students were given five minutes to drive and get acquainted with the machine and it’s controls. When entering the competition, the students were to drive through a course then back the tractor and trailer into a tight spot against a pole. There were several divisions; such as, ladies division, Sr. Team, Jr. Team, and Schools. Each division had a winner and was awarded a trophy.
