Deadline is June 29 for FFA Students to Enter Tractor Driving Safety Contest

The deadline is June 29 for FFA students to enter the New York State FFA Tractor Driving Safety Contest at the 2015 Empire Farm Days at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls.

The competition will be held Thursday, Aug. 13 as part of the Northeast’s largest outdoor agricultural trade show.

Students complete a written safety exam, a parts identification task, and driving courses with 2-wheel and 4-wheel wagons. The Junior division is open to 14-16 year olds; the 16-18-year-old Senior division winner will compete at the Big E Exposition in Springfield, Mass., in September.

“This annual competition at Empire Farm Days encourages students to learn proper tractor operation and to make safety on the farm a priority,” says New York State FFA Tractor Driving Safety Contest Coordinator Jon Clayson.

To pre-register, contestants may submit their name and age division by June 29 to Walk-up registrations will be accepted the day of the contest.
