Pupils from St Jospeh's RC primary school in Cockermouth have been telling ITV Border what they treasure about living in Cumbria.
We've been asking on Facebook and Twitter whether you think Cumbria is a treasure and why. There have been some great responses so far but did you know you can email us too?
Get in touch by emailing email@example.com. You may find your input is read out on the programme tonight at 6pm.
Is Cumbria a treasure?
Cumbria's Museum Consortium certainly think so and they've launched a new project 'Treasures of Cumbria'.
It will record, share and debate what people value about the county.
A website has been created where heritage organisations, community groups and individuals can share what they treasure about Cumbria, so that a profile of the county can be shared online.
