GIRARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A fourth-grade student at Girard Intermediate School got a visit Thursday from a special guest.
Angelo Palguta won a visit from The Toughest Truck Monster Tour.
Youngstown Area Goodwill Industries, The Toughest Truck Monster Tour and WKBN collaborated on the contest in which area students could register for a chance to have a Toughest Monster Truck visit their school.
The contest was for students in kindergarten through eighth grade in Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.
“I won 12 tickets with 12 pit passes and a $50 gift certificate to be used at the Covelli Centre that night, for Friday night, and the monster truck brought to his school,” said Charmaine Curto, Palguta’s grandma.
“How they sound and the tricks that they can do… I’ve seen them do like backflips and front flips and ran over cars and stuff,” Palguta said.
Grand-, second- and third-place prize winners were awarded tickets and pit passes to The Toughest Monster Truck Tour at the Covelli Centre. Shows run at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31 and Saturday, Feb. 1.
