Two Paseo Academy students chosen for prestigious trip
Two students from the Paseo Academy of Fine and Performing Arts are in Washington DC for the National Arts Advocacy Day.
The academy is part of Kansas City Public Schools.
Seniors Khalil Odums and Ben Rauth won the trip because of essays they wrote about "Why Education Matters".
Normally, only one student is sent to the nation's capital, but this year, they decided to make an exception, said Ben Martin, executive director of Missouri Alliance for Arts Education.
"Each year the Alliance holds a contest where we give students a chance to become our national student arts advocates," Martin said. "Both Ben Rauth and Khalil Odums had great entries, and our judging panel asked, can't we please just sent both of them?"
Odums and Rauth were chosen from thousands of entrants.
