Adam accepts 2nd Place in State TSA Transportation Contest
Adam made a car out of wood, wheels from a Tonka Toy, lots of hot glue, and miscellaneous parts to take 2nd Place at the transportation contest for Southern Middle School at the State TSA Conference. His car made it farther up the 16 foot hill than all the others, but the judge couldn't give him first place because Adam had used a gear assembly from a hobby kit and that isn't exactly the spirit of the competition.
The winner's car flipped over, but it met the spirit of the competition.
The judge told Adam that he would have to fabricate his own gear assembly at the National Competition in Nashville in June.
Adam accepted the award on Saturday morning at an honors breakfast in Louisville. Tyler Farquat, who was a state officer in the TSA, stands to the right to congratulate him.
