Career Development Events (CDE) are designed to help FFA members prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student’s technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter. On January 25th, students from Brazoswood travelled to Sam Houston State University where they competed in the Area 3 Tractor Tech Competition.

The Tractor Tech Competition is comprised of three parts:

  • Part one is the written test which is 100 questions about the science and physics of tractor equipment and how they operate.
  • Part two has 20 components with 5 questions over each component; students must answer questions to diagnose each component and determine its ability.
  • Part three mandates students to diagnose 5 problems in a brand new tractor, fix the problem, and then drive it within a 45 minute window.

The Brazoswood team was 2nd overall qualifying them for the state contest!

Riley Arnold - 1st High Point Individual Overall
Samuel James - 10th High Individual
Ed Sablatura (on tractor) 5th High Individual

Congratulations to teacher Chase Watson and these fine FFA students!
