Welcome to the website for the Fergus of Lewistown FFA Alumni Mechanics Competition. This year, as in past years, our contest will be centered on the categories and skills of the current year's National Agricultural Mechanics Theme. The theme for 2019 is "Pest Management" This year's competition will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at Fergus High School.
This will be the 32nd year of the Fergus FFA Alumni's sponsorship of the Mechanics Contest here in Lewistown. We are indebted to our Alumni's drive and dedication in making these contests successful year in and year out. We are also indebted to each participating chapter and their members.
Our Mechanics Contest will have competitions for both the senior and junior divisions. This year’s contest will very comparable to last years with the senior division having a team event that is part of the contest. Awards and prizes will be provided for top team scores and top individual scores in both divisions. Team scores will be determined from the sum of the top three individual scores of each team of four members as designated at registration.
Contest categories for this year’s competition will be tied to this years theme (see above) and will include tests in the following categories: welding, construction, electric, equipment, small engines, and 'environmental'.
Chapter Advisers are reminded that the Junior Division is only for first year participants in the freshmen class or seventh and eighth grade students.
