Lorena ISD student Kyndal Sligh was one of five area winners of Tractor Supply Company’s “Great Neighbor” Essay Contest.

Tractor Supply’s “Follow Us to the Fair” Tour was a part of the Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo. Now in its fourth year, the “Follow Us to the Fair” Tour is an 11,000-mile, cross-country journey to state and county fairs, making 24 stops in 14 states over six months.

This year’s essay competition encouraged youths to submit a short essay detailing how a memorable 4-H or FFA experience has influenced their development as a great neighbor in their community.

Local winners were honored during a ceremony at the Tractor Supply booth at the Heart O’ Texas Fair and Rodeo on Oct. 6. In addition to a commemorative plaque, winners received a Tractor Supply gift pack.

Other students acknowledged were Adele Bosma, of Georgetown; Nicole Jones, of Bullard; Tanner Martin, of Lott; and Elexis Sanchez, of Bronte.
