Around 400 students were at Pittsburg's Schlanger Park today celebrating their efforts in "A change for Schlanger Challenge".
All fourth and fifth graders in Pittsburg took part in the challenge and today was Reward Day.
They had hot dogs for lunch and enjoyed tons of activities.
They're being rewarded for their efforts in collecting spare change from home to donate for playground changes in Schlanger Park.
"We have our Everybody Plays project going on right now to build a new ADA accessible playground for Schlanger Park," says Kim Vogel, the City of Pittsburg Director of Parks and Recreation. "We are raising funds for that through the Everybody Plays project and so that's why this was a target area."
A winning class from each school gets a small trophy, and the overall winner gets a traveling plaque.
