WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Some Pekin High School students are visiting the U.S. Capitol.

Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, who you can see in the back of the picture, welcomed the students as they arrived.

Their trip to Washington was organized through the Close-Up Foundation which offers students a chance to see the democratic process at work.
