The Fieldays Schools Tractor Pull encourages students to support each other to achieve something spectacular – how cool is it for the kids to be able to say they could pull a full-size tractor!

Teams of 20 students will pull the Giltrap AgriZone tractor 40 metres down the length of a field in a race against the clock as they compete against other local schools for a spot in the final.

Schools Tractor Pull

The school with the fastest time from each of three regional heats will go through to compete against the defending champions, Te Awamutu Primary School, at the Schools Tractor Pull Final at Fieldays on Saturday 16 June. The winning school will receive $2,000 prize money with second taking away $750, third $500 and fourth $250.

We encourage the school community to get out and support the kids, and The Breeze radio station will be at the heats to hype up the crowd and record for later broadcast.

Entries for the School Tractor Pull have now closed. Schools have been selected based on how they intend to use the $2,000 prize money and location.
