Two 8th grade students from Burnet Middle School in Austin ISD have been named national ambassadors for the Do the Write Thing Texas Challenge.

This year marks the first time that the two national ambassadors from the Austin-Travis County area have been from the same school.

Rudolph (RC) Hardin and Vivian Pan were selected as ambassadors for the program, which is an initiative of the National Campaign to Stop Violence.

Hardin and Pan’s compositions were selected from among 3,820 essays submitted by students in the Austin, Eanes, Del Valle, Manor and Pflugerville school districts.

The students will have the opportunity to travel to Washington DC to present their views on youth violence to national leaders.
