Now in its 22nd year, the Delo Tractor Restoration Competition was established in 1995 to recognize and reward the creativity, technical aptitude and business knowledge of high school-aged students from around the country.
In addition to competing for recognition and the $10,000 Grand Champion prize, participants develop teamwork, project management, budget management, planning and marketing skills. These skills will enable them to become future leaders in the agriculture community.
Participating in the Chevron Delo Tractor Restoration Competition is fun, challenging and can be a life-changing experience. Not only will student teams restore an old tractor to its original (or almost original) luster, but you will also learn valuable life and business skills.
Participants of the 2017 Delo TRC will compete for fun and prizes:
