The Chesapeake Chapter had the fortune to sponsor and outstanding young man, Henry Brunette, in his trip to compete in the 2017 National Youth Engineering Challenge at Purdue University.  The contest is designed to give youth who are participating in agricultural tractor and machinery-focused programs an opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge of tractor maintenance and skill in operation, and to compete with other youth in so doing.  You can see how challenging the criteria is clicking here for the competition details.  There is also a letter from the University of Maryland thanking the Chesapeake Chapter for their support and a personal thank you from Henry for helping him get to the national competition, click here to read.

Congratulations Henry!
