MINOCQUA - People love watching commercials during the Super Bowl.
One Northwoods video club wants to use their skills to make one of those commercials.
You'll see this behind the scenes at most video shoots.
But for Charlotte Fohner's video students, this is their chance to shoot a Super Bowl commercial.
That's because Doritos will use the best homemade commercial.
"I went to the Doritos website and I read their rules. Kind of went through it," Fohner said.
"Then I emailed Paul, who is helping me direct the video club, and said hey what do you think about this for a project for video club."
Fohner formed a video club in September.
She wanted to help kids who have the same passion for videography.
"During the summer we often have high school age people to come and help us at our work place. One of them is high school senior named Paul Hein who was interested in learning more video," said Fohner.
"When I found out his friends wanted to learn more, I was like well here's an opportunity for me to give some of my knowledge to people who want to learn more and create a group."
So they used the Super Bowl Doritos Commercial contest as a teaching lesson.
"We've done stuff before, but this is kind of the first video we've done using the members of the club," Video Club, co-leader, Paul Hein said.
"As a club planning it out a lot in advanced and stuff like that. So I feel like this was a pretty good experience for all of us."
The goal is to have the commercial played during the Super Bowl.
They would also like to win one million dollar prize.
But for now, they're just focused on perfecting their skills.
"I think none of us we're expecting to win or are expecting to win. The chances of that are one in a very large number," Hein said.
"So I don't think any of us expected to win. We just wanted to have a good time and kinda get more experience."
MERRILL - A Northwoods school pulled off a big surprise on Friday to honor a few veterans. After months of planning, students and staff at Kate Goodrich Elementary got to see the payoff of all their hard work.
"It was like kind of overwhelming," said Wolfgang Lenk.
Lenk, Todd Annis, and Randy Perry had no idea they would be the guests of honor.
"To see all these kids and knowing how hard they worked selling all this, and now your name comes up that you're one of the three recipients, it was awesome," said Annis.
RHINELANDER - A scoop of frozen custard goes down pretty well on a humid day like the Northwoods saw Friday. Rhinelander's Associated Bank made grabbing a scoop an easy way to help others.
Culver's set up a mobile custard stand outside the new bank building on the corner of Lincoln Street and Oneida Avenue from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Fifty cents from every $2.50 cup sold went to Associated Bank's Children's Miracle Network fund.
The bank is hoping to raise $500 through its fundraisers for CMN this month.
