On Nov. 8, Ethan Martin, a Buckingham Middle School seventh grade FFA member, and Chandler Sexton, a Buckingham High School FFA senior, recently competed in the Southeast Area FFA Tractor Operator’s Contest held at Whetstone Farm in Buckingham County.

The contest consisted of a written test, safety walkaround, a two-wheeled wagon obstacle course, and a four-wheeled wagon backing event.

Martin placed first in the junior level and Sexton placed second in the senior level event. The event was hosted by the Davis family with Crewe Tractor and James River Equipment providing tractors for the event. Pictured are, from left, Martin and Sexton.
