HERNANDO, MS (WMC) -

WMC Action News 5 is sending a high 5 to the creative minds at Hernando High School for their unique way of raising awareness about autism.

The Mississippi students got a little help from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' smash hit, Uptown Funk.

Students from the school's Interact Club and CFA Leadership Academy put together a parody video called "Uptown Blue" to shine a light on autism and encourage their community to get involved.

On April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, the students want everyone to wear blue and for business owners to light up their buildings at night with blue lights.
