Seven high school students from Gary, Ind., are preparing for a trip they won to Washington for President Barack Obama's inauguration.

The students won the all-expense paid trip by winning the Barden Gary Foundation's essay contest. Their essays were filled with passionate and creative ideas about improving the city of Gary.

As part of their trip to Washington, the seven high school seniors will participate in workshops, meet with members of Congress and witness the swearing in of President Obama.
