District 6 'Roadeo' competition held in Hattiesburg

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The District 6 Equipment Operators 'Roadeo' took place on Thursday, at the Forrest County Multipurpose Center in Hattiesburg.

This annual competition and training event is a great opportunity to see how MDOT employees maintain and enhance their daily operating skills while ensuring their duties are being performed as safely as possible.

Winners from each District competition will move on to the State Roadeo competition.

The event was an opportunity to network with area MDOT workers from across the District 6 area.

Skill competitions included skills with a backhoe, tractor and driving a dump truck among others.

The event concluded with a lunch served to the attendants.

This event has been held over the past twelve years and winners will move on to compete with other Districts and ultimately, the state competition which will be held later this year.
