AMARILLO -- It wasn't quite Madame Tussauds but students at Rolling Hills Elementary showed some skill today.
Students with the gifted and talented program were asked to chose a historic figure and dress up as their chosen person.
Then, they memorized facts about each person and recited them for visitors.
Organizers say the event is a unique way to get kids to learn more about important people throughout history.
