Communities across the state are doing their part to clean up the environment but it's not just adults helping out.
Johnson Elementary School students pitched in Monday by cleaning up trash around the school.
This is the second year the school has participated in Make it Shine.
Students said it's fun and that it's important to keep the environment clean.
"We get to clean up my school and make the environment a better place, cleaner," said Kayce Bailey, second grader.
Kids in kindergarten through fifth grade participated in the cleanup.
