The Cops Connecting with Kids Program through the Evansville Police Department made their way to Cedar Hall Elementary School Thursday afternoon to announce the 16 students who will be making the trip to Walt Disney World in January.

All 16 were chosen by their teachers based on a number of attributes including their attitudes, behavior, and character.

These 16 well-deserving students will join the 16 chosen from McGary Middle School on Monday, and the 16 to be announced during a morning assembly at Glenwood Academy on Friday.

The January 25th through 28th trip will be the third since Cops Connecting with Kids Program began, and is funded through donations collected around the year from area businesses, individuals, and events including the annual Dream Bigger Weekend at Bennett Motors.
