April 22, 2014 – Urban Cleanup Week’s “School Kids Sweep Up Day” was a success with students from Paul Robeson Community School, Lincoln Elementary Community School, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School and McKinley Community School helping their City out and participating in Urban Cleanup Week.
All four schools picked up 1.2 tons of litter! McKinley Community School came in first place, winning the gold dust pan. Paul Robeson Community School received second place, winning the silver dust pan, with Lincoln Elementary Community School winning third and the bronze dust pan!
Following the game of “Slam Dunk the Junk,” pictured above, students could win even more prizes playing a recycling game of PLINKO.
