From Hunter Marrow’s article on The Argus Observer website:

A horn blared across the room of the auto shop signaling automotive students to put down their pens and step away from their stations Friday.

More than a dozen students from Vale and Harper high schools and Canyon-Owyhee School Service Agency, in Wilder, were participating in a Regional SkillsUSA Contest that tested their automobile repair acumen through 11 skill stations. The stations evaluated students on their knowledge in areas such as steering, suspension and manual transmission. There also was a written test and mock interview with a Universal Technical Institute recruiter.

The youths had 17 minutes at each station to perform their task, before a horn sounded and they had to rotate to the next station.
