Road to Rural Prosperity--Jerry Renshaw & Ag Mechanics Contestants at 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo

Thu, 12 Mar 2020 05:52:21 CDT

Road to Rural Prosperity--Jerry Renshaw & Ag Mechanics Contestants at 2020 Oklahoma Youth Expo Our latest Road to Rural Prosperity Podcast is live- and features Host Ron Hays talking with Jerry Renshaw, Superintendent of the first ever Ag Mechanics Contest at the Oklahoma Youth Expo, as well as with students Tracy Criner of Porter, Kody Munoz of Elgin and Wyatt Kappus of Union City.


These young men talk about their projects- how they planned and built them and how the skills they have gained will help them in life.


Renshaw gives a vision of growing this first Ag Mechanics contest at OYE to a comparable level seen at contests at major shows in Texas, where thousands of men and women compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars of scholarships annually.

102 entries were submitted for the first Ag Mechanics Contest- and 63 were judged on Wednesday by OYE judges. Awards for the first Ag Mechanics Contest will be announced Thursday morning.


Tracy Criner and the team he is a part of at Porter built a large goose-neck trailer as part of their project. Munoz and the team at Elgin built a full-sized, portable grilling Trailer, and Kappus has built a portable Welding truck as his project. Pictures of all these fantastic creations are available on our Flickr Page
