CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A group of area students are headed to a state conference for their efforts to fight crime.

"We chose eight winners to go to the state conference in Fort Worth, Texas," said Crime Stoppers Board Member, Jonathan Bailey.

Bailey says the students are from CCISD, Tuloso-Midway, Calallen, and Robstown. Those teenagers submitted essays to the non-profit regarding crime in our area and solutions to ending it. The purpose of the trip is to show what law enforcement looks like from behind the scenes. Students will also learn about the impacts drug and drug trafficking have on our state.
