SEATTLE -- Another successful We Day has come and gone in Seattle.

About 15,000 students and teachers from over 450 schools across Washington state packed into the KeyArena Friday to celebrate We Day, an initiative of Free The Children. We Day encourages young students to be informed and involved in philanthropy across the community and the world.

Students who came didn't buy a ticket, they've earned it. Throughout the day, they celebrated action and community involvement with renowned speakers such as Edward Norton and Pete Carroll, Cody Simpson and Flo Rida.
