The FFA Metal Art contest was held at Columbia Basin College in Pasco on March 15th where 15 teams from around Washington State competed.  Teams had six hours to pick out their metal from a "junk pile," design, and build their art piece.  The project was scored from judges in the welding industry on craftsmanship, art principles, consumer appeal, and technical skills.  Dayton FFA placed first in this contest.  Their art piece «Eternal Roses» will be on display at an art gallery in Tri-Cities and then later auctioned off with proceeds benefiting charity.  The team is (l to r): Juniper Kerr, Adam Puckett, Tayven Seney, Ashton Phinney, and Jurnee Griffen.
