Fayetteville earns 'Make It Shine' grand prize

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- The state Department of Environmental Protection has recognized four West Virginia communities for efforts to beautify and clean up their towns.

The Make It Shine Program has awarded annual Clean Community Awards to Alderson, Beech Bottom, Fayetteville and New Cumberland.

Fayetteville earned the grand prize and will receive $500 to apply toward additional projects.

The DEP says the Fayette County community was recognized for efforts that included hosting an annual Earth Day celebration, conducting environmental education on recycling and anti-littering in schools; and the enactment of an ordinance aimed at reducing dilapidated housing.
