East Texas Kids Head Down Under

A group of East Texas school kids are gearing up for a special good-will trip to the land down under.

Over 60 kids from all over East Texas have been selected for a student ambassador trip to Australia and New Zealand in the summer.

The program is sponsored by a non-profit group called People to People, with the primary goal of promoting international goodwill and understanding through youth.

Among their assignments today was to prepare traditional Australian and New Zealand dishes.

The group includes students from grade school to high school.

They will leave for scheduled trips in June and July.
