The first place winners from FVTC won the team Crop Specialist category and consisted of students Jessica Levson, Zac Soltvedt, and Brittany Detert. FVTC also took second and third in this same category, sweeping the team competition. Second-place students included Mike Buiter, Dustin Korth, and Jeris Nigh and the third-place team was comprised of students Ben Julka, Brad Henken, and Lorn Waldschmidt.
