The cast for "Up With People" spent their day at the North Platte High School and hosted their cultural fair.

About 17 different countries were represented.

It's a chance for students to learn about each culture through the use of crafts, music and dance. They were even empowered on how they can make a difference in their communities.

"We got to express our opinions so that was amazing because normally we're going to be the future and we don't get a chance to express our views about the world and stuff like that, so they really took us in and asked our opinions on stuff like that," said Saint Patrick's High School Senior Ashtyn Winder.

102 international students make up this year's cast.
