Hillary Clinton and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor encouraged Bronx elementary school students to reach for the stars.

The former secretary of state joined the kids at Lehman College Friday.

It was all part of a summer academic program run by the Bronx Children's Museum called Dream Big.

The program uses art to teach second and third graders from three local Bronx elementary schools different subjects.

Sotomayor invited Clinton and other government officials to come speak.

Sotomayor grew up in the Bronx and has been involved with the program since it started 5 years ago.

"I saw all kinds of dancing and singing, and I saw the future on here on this stage. So always believe in yourself and know that many, many others believe in you," Clinton said.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro and City Council Speaker Melissa-Mark Viverito were also in attendance.

One hundred and twenty children took part in the program.
