Radio Disney St. Louis to host Disney Channel's Skai Jackson (‘Jessie’) at Lincoln Presidential Library

300 people will meet Jackson on June 14 and tour Lincoln museum for free

SPRINGFIELD – Hundreds of lucky children will have the opportunity to tour the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum for free when Radio Disney St. Louis, part of the #1 radio network for kids, tweens and families, hosts Skai Jackson of Disney Channel's hit series "Jessie" on June 14.

Jackson, who plays Zuri Ross, will host a meet-and-greet with fans from noon until 2 at the presidential library (112 N. Sixth Street, Springfield) and participate in a tour of the presidential museum with the winner of a Radio Disney contest.

The meet-and-greet is free and open to the first 300 people to receive wristbands from Radio Disney St. Louis the morning of June 14. Kids with wristbands also get to visit the museum for free, and their parents get $5 off the Full Experience admission price. A Full Experience ticket covers both the museum and the special “Lincoln: History to Hollywood” exhibit of sets and costumes from the movie “Lincoln.”

Distribution of wristbands begins at 9 a.m. when the presidential library opens.

Families who do not get a chance to participate in the Jackson meet-and-greet still get to visit the museum at the reduced price for adults.

The Radio Disney St. Louis Road Crew will provide interactive entertainment, fun prizes and "parent packs," and kids and families' favorite music.
