More than a dozen students at North Harford High School in Maryland drove their tractors to school in celebration of Agricultural Heritage Day, which has become known as "Tractor Day" to the young farmers who participate.

Capital News Service reported that students bring their tractors to school to show off, and participants in the school's agriculture program talk about and share their work from the school farm. The event was initially designed as a way to celebrate farmers and their land in the rural community.

Even the school building represents this farming heritage, according to the news source.

"The green is for the plants, and the gold is for the sunshine," said North Harford's principal, W. Edward Herbold, explaining the school colors, which represent those of a John Deere tractor.

Whether or not children at the school have used John Deere tractors, the school's agricultural program has become increasingly popular as students from more suburban areas have begun to apply.

Events like the ag heritage day occur around the country, as families in North Carolina's Piedmont region have held "Farm Day" as a way to celebrate for many years, according to the local government's website
