DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Department of Education, in association with the Iowa Pupil Transportation Association and the school bus dealers in the state, will be sponsoring the Third Annual “Best of the Best” competition on April 16.
The program recognizes school bus technicians for the important role they play in school transportation.
The competition will include a written exam and a hands-on component to determine the “best of the best” in Iowa. The winner of the competition will go on to compete in the National Association for Pupil Transportation’s (NAPT) “America’s Best” competition, to be held later in the year.
The national winner will receive an award at the NAPT Summit in the fall.
