“Many young students dream of taking a trip like this,” said Deborah Haas, Vice President, Travel Products and Services, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “AAA is excited to team with our travel partners AmaWaterways and Allianz in making this trip a reality for enthusiastic young travelers. The knowledge these students gain will help shape their future, while building new relationships and memories that will last a life time.”
To be eligible, students must be:
Entering the 8th grade in good standing
At least 13 years old
Reside in Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wisconsin, or select areas of Illinois, Indiana, or Minnesota.

Winners will be selected based on:
A creative selfie, showcasing their love for travel
Their answers to three essay questions:
Why do you want to go on this trip?
How do rivers affect the communities through which they run?
During the trip, you’ll meet many people. In what ways do you expect the people you meet to be similar to and different from yourself and your friends and family?
Winners will be notified beginning in October. Winning students will bring one parent or legal guardian to serve as a chaperone. Each pair will share a stateroom while sailing on AmaWaterways’ “AmaDante” river cruise ship, from March 28 – April 4, 2019.
