Meet Amy Diaz and Jason Case

It was really exciting for Chester Barrows School when Amy Diaz and Jason Case, winners of CBS The Amazing Race, came to visit Chester Barrows School!  Amy and Jason talked about their experiences on Amazing Race and answered questions and talked about some of the places they visited in their whirlwind 24 days of challenge and competition.  Their adventures can take you on an exploration right here!
