A group of high school students from North Lamar’s FFA put their heads together to build a 13-foot, aluminum diamond-plate floor trailer for the Ft. Worth Stock Show Ag Mechanics Contest.  Equipped with a solar powered electric winch and abuilt-in tie down system, the project was impressive enough to wow the judges and earn a first place win.

Seniors Jeffery Money, Jacob Hignight, and Doran Hutchison along with junior Dalson Lee brought home prizes for their first place win that included a Lincoln Welder and various shop supplies.  The team will enter their trailer in the Houston Livestock Show Agricultural Mechanics Project contest in March.
