Tractor Restoration Competition

About the tractor restoration contest

The Delo® Tractor Restoration Competition was established over 20 years ago to recognize and reward the creativity, technical aptitude and business knowledge of high school-aged students from around the country. In addition to learning technical and mechanical skills from their restoration, participants develop teamwork, project management, budget management, planning and marketing skills. All of these skills will enable them to become future leaders in the agriculture community.

I had almost all of my school paid for by scholarships, which included money from the Delo TRC. People were shocked at how many times I got called up for scholarships at my high school graduation. Life has been treating me quite well. Thank you Delo so much—this competition has helped me get to where I am today! I am so thankful to have been a part of the Delo TRC.

I personally am thankful for Chevron putting on the TRC, as it has made such an immense positive impact on my life. And so very thankful for all the wonderful TRC team, judges, friends I have made through the contest, FFA advisors and parents who make it all possible and such a positive experience.
