The Show Barn in Slaton was packed to watch approximately 40 students show off more than 100 different projects at the Slaton Stock Show Saturday afternoon (Jan. 1).
In addition to the show, students auctioned off items they have made in mechanics. There was also a silent auction featuring items given by donors and a concession stand.
Judge for the event was Jarrot Foote.
Exhibitors received ribbons while top honors earned banners and belt buckles.
