Cody Garrett of Cuero Future Farmers of America has been named one of the finalists in the 2013 Delo Tractor Restoration Competition for restoring a 1968 Case 1030 Comfort King tractor.
This national competition was established in 1995 to recognize and reward the creativity, technical aptitude and business knowledge of high school-aged students from around the country.
Participants develop project management, budget management and planning and marketing skills. These skills will enable participants to become future leaders in the agriculture community.
Cody was selected as a finalist based on his workmanship as seen in his video and workbook that was submitted.
Cody will now travel to Louisville, Ky., to do an oral presentation Oct. 31 on his tractor to a panel of judges for a chance to be named champion tractor.
In addition to this, there is a video contest. Anyone can vote for the best video three times each day until Oct. 21. To view Cody's video and cast your votes for his video, go to delotrcvoting.com.
