Kids and cleaning don't always go together, but Friday hundreds of students put on gloves and grabbed trash bags to keep Brazos County beautiful.
Nine elementary schools participated in the 4th Annual Great American Campus Cleanup. Students picked up litter outside their schools and at nearby parks.
Students were also treated to an educational program that teaches about the health and safety benefits of preventing litter.
Keep Brazos Beautiful's youth liaison board, Y.E.L.L. (Youth Environmental Leaders League) was established in August 2003, to encourage high school students in Bryan and College Station to become more involved in making Brazos County a cleaner, greener, and more beautiful place to live.
