La Junta students were tasked to interview drivers about their lives, work environment, and how the machines work. 

The students who completed the assignment were eligible to win prizes from SoCo Froyo, Sonic, and La Junta Tiger Booster Apparel store.

La Junta Students who earned prizes:  Kareb Smith, Dineah Moreno, Angelina Apodaca, Leilani Marquez, Antonio Archuleta, Yliani Garcia, Michael Wilkinshaw, Jax Hannel, Oakley Jones, and Emmay Ayala. (Don't Miss The Photo Gallery of Winners at the bottom of this article!)

The first Arkansas Valley Wheels to Work event was coordinated by the Santa Fe Trail BOCES Pathway to Prosperity project in collaboration with the La Junta Workforce Center and other community partners. 

This event was made possible because of RISE Grant funds. 

Small grants from the La Junta Advanced Manufacturers and the Colorado Workforce Center assisted in organizing this career exposure event. 

A special Thank you to Rick Klein and the City of La Junta for supporting this event.
