Iowa students drive tractors to school
The parking lot at eastern Iowa's Benton Community High School looked a little crowded this past week.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG-TV reports that Friday, April 5, was the Van Horne school's annual "Bring Your Tractor to School" day.
FFA organizes the event every year.
Student Connor Selken drove his great-grandfather's 1951 Ford tractor to the school. Adam Gorkow drove in a much bigger machine and noted that Iowa is the top corn producer in the country.
Gorkow says that without the tractors, that wouldn't be possible.
