Has your school got the strength and stamina to win the 2017 Fieldays Schools Tractor Pull Competition?
Fieldays has upped the ante for the School’s Tractor Pull competition this year with a whopping $2,000 cash donation to the winning school, and $500 for runner-up.
And it’s not just about the cash prize, the Fieldays Schools Tractor Pull competition is an awesome opportunity to unite your students in supporting their peers, and encourage each other to achieve something spectacular – how cool is it for the kids to be able to say they could pull a full size tractor!
A maximum of ten local schools will compete in individual heats in May when the mighty Giltrap AgriZone Tractor makes the visit. A team of 20 students per school will take part in the challenge to pull the 5000kg (5 tonne) tractor a total of 30 metres against the clock. The heats will be held during morning tea/afternoon tea break so the entire school can get out and support the kids. The two schools that complete the tractor pull in the fastest time will go on to compete at the final on site at Fieldays on Saturday 17 June, 1pm.
Sounds like fun right? Your school needs to get involved!
Before you fill in the registration form, have a think about what your school will use the $2,000 prize money for, as this will determine which schools will take part in the competition!
