THROGGS NECK - A group of Bronx students are adding a bit of color to their cafeteria.

Students from the Academy of Civic Engagement in Throggs Neck participated in Publicolor Day, which was established by Mayor Michael Bloomberg as a way to get at-risk youths involved in design activities.

Coordinators say the projects not only get students creating, but it helps keep them in school.

The students worked on the project all afternoon and will continue their work next week.
