In this photo made Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014, Nick Powers, 16, drives a 60,000-pound load of potatoes from a field to a storage facility in Mapleton, Maine. Powers is a junior at Presque Isle High School, one of a half-dozen schools that close for up to three weeks each autumn as kids help to bring in the potato crop. Educators and farmers are clinging to a tradition that give farmers much-needed help and puts money in the pockets of teenagers. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty)
