KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Several East Tennessee kids returned home late Monday afternoon after a trip sponsored by the AAA Safety Patrol. 

About 1,800 fifth graders were selected to travel to Washington, D.C., for doing a good job at school. 

Justin Kelly, a student on the trip, said, "Awesome," when asked what it was like being away from his parents for the first time. 

The kids reunited with their parents around 6:30 p.m. at Chilhowee Park.
