Iowa students drive tractors to school Friday

VAN HORNE, Iowa (AP) — The parking lot at eastern Iowa’s Benton Community High School looked a little crowded this week.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG-TV reports ( that Friday was the Van Horne school’s annual “Bring Your Tractor to School” day.

Future Farmers of America 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.
