Five Godley students were among the winners of the ag mechanics show on Tuesday during the Johnson County Junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair.
In the metal works senior division, grand champion was Stephanie Admire of Godley FFA, who built a metal swing. Reserve champion went to Wyatt Hardin, Austin Vanderkooi and Dagoberto Lopez of Godley FFA, who built a welding trailer.
In the wood works senior division, grand champion was Emilee Howell of Alvarado FFA, who built a hall bench. Reserve champion went to Jeremy Heiner of Godley FFA, who built a rustic entry way table.
The junior metal and wood works competition was combined this year. In junior ag mechanics, Mayce Ball of Friendship 4-H won grand champion for building a chair and foot stool, with Cooper Bosher of Joshua FFA winning reserve champion for building a Ford 8N Tractor Beverage cart.
Metal & Wood Superintendent Bryan Kruse and Assistant Superintendent Stacy Singleton said they have been hosting the ag mechanics show for seven years now.
Judges were Pat Chumley of Cleburne and David Bowers of Burleson. Both judges were looking for authenticity, craftsmanship, quality and usefulness of the item.
“I was really impressed with all the entries this year,” Bowers said.
Bowers said this was his first year judging the ag mechanics show for Johnson County.
Some of the students said they had some help from their parents and grandparents, which is a nice thing when they can spend time with their family, he said.
