Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Agricultural Mechanics Contest (Submitted by Kristin Powers) - Timpson High School students Isaiah Molloy, Jamie Moore and Taylor Fanguy competed in the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Agricultural Mechanics Contest on March 20th-21st.

These students completed a 6X16 foot lowboy trailer during a four week time span that won a Blue Ribbon. Skills learned and perfected were measuring, welding, cutting and shaping metal, constructing a project from start to finish. Installing wiring and lights to DOT standards and completing a project book with pictures, captions and specifications required by the contest.
