The annual bus rodeo was held in the parking lot of Second Baptist Church on Moody Road with 20 out of the 193 Houston County drivers participating.
The rodeo is a competitive event used to select two of the top drivers from Houston County to be eligible to go to the state competition in June.
The drivers had to manuver their buses through 12 events on an obstacle course that included twists and turns, to placing their bus' wheels between tennis balls while the bus is moving and to backing up into a simulated alley while judges kept score at each event.
According to Frank Scott, director of transportation for Houston County, it allows the drivers a chance to practice their skills and in turn it promotes student safety.
Scott said, "Having good drivers is paramount to the student's safety."
