RHINELANDER - Kids found one of the biggest races of the year in the Northwoods Tuesday.
The Rhinelander District Library hosted their annual worm race.
Teams of two faced off with worms in hand.
Each believing their worm would win the trophy this year.
"ShadowWind is the fastest racer. Because he is never beaten," said 10-year-old Louis Malias.
This year's competition came from across the United States.
A veteran racer said she couldn't miss this years' event.
"Well, it took lots and lots of hours. I traveled from Arizona to Wisconsin," said 11-year-old Megan Foy.
In the end, there can only be one winner.
Race officials say the race helps kids understand a few valuable life lessons.
"We do have winners and losers. Everyone is really a winner, but it's a lesson in life too. You'll see some sad kids and some that are mad at their worms," said children's services director Tom Hurlburt.
If you missed this year's race don't worry, it will be back next year. This year's winner was the team of Emma and Maria, and their worm, Dr. Steve.

Sheriff's officials say forensic anthropologists will examine the remains of "Jane Doe" using techniques that weren't available when her body was found. Through chemical isotope analysis, investigators may learn where the woman lived and her approximate age. DNA testing can determine eye, skin and hair color, as well as genetic ancestry and face shape.
