Paul Gregg, a 5th-grade student at James Arthur Intermediate School in Kennedale has won the Grand Prize in the PBS Daytripper contest. He is the son of Will Gregg and Genevieve Croft. Groft is a Kennedale Junior High School teacher for Theatre Arts.

Daytripper is an Austin based program shown locally on KERA, PBS station. Chet Garner is the creator, executive producer, writer, and host of the program. Chet says of the program that it covers “the well-known landmarks to the completely obscure dives and hideaways, we explore every corner of the Lone Star State.  Hopefully, inspiring you to head out on your own Texas-sized adventures.” This week the Daytripper is on at 10 am Saturday. The feature this week is Texas Swimming Hole Day Trip.

Paul won the contest for writing and filming his own four minute Daytripper video. Basic requirements for young participants were that the video could be filmed anywhere, from the local museum to their own backyards, as long as they stayed safe, had fun and learned something new.
