(St. Joseph, Mo.)- Students from Central Missouri traveled to St. Joseph on Wednesday to help find ways on how to make the world a better place.

Warrensburg Middle School students participated in the emPowerU Program at the Heartland Foundation.

The program was created to raise youth's awareness of the importance of civic responsibility and to help make a difference in their community. It also gives them the opportunity to make a positive change now so they can continue that change in their adult years.

"It's tremendous. To describe it, when you see the talent and abilities that these younger people have now is just amazing," said Devran Brower of the Heartland Foundation. "The world is in good hands. It really is."

Since the program began in 2007, more than 20,000 students have participated in it.

A cold front is currently moving through our area this morning dropping temperatures into the lower 40s and upper 30s. Today will be a cool day with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s with increasing clouds. Temperatures will fall into the lower 30s tonight. We could see a few areas of light rain and drizzle this evening, but precipitation chances will start to increase overnight into tomorrow morning. With the sub freezing temperatures, precipitation will transition from light rain and drizzle in the evening to snow overnight into Tuesday morning. Snowfall will continue through the morning hours on Tuesday before transitioning to a rain/snow mix while it exits the area. Most areas will see around 1-3 inches. Accumulations will stay mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces, but expect slushy road conditions Tuesday morning. Conditions will slowly start to improve for the rest of the work week with sunshine returning and temperatures slowly warming. Rain chances will return for the end of the work week.
