The Chetek AmVets Post 25 is sponsoring the 12th annual Just for Kids Ice Fishing Contest on Saturday, Feb. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Pokegama Lake in front of Gilligans and Pokegama Lakeside Cantina.

There is free entry for the event, which is open to kids ages 4–15 and special athletes of all ages (they must be accompanied by a guardian or an adult). Fishing and parking will only be allowed in designated areas.

Prizes will be awarded for fish categories and age brackets, along with door prizes and other prizes to be given away. Hot dogs and hot chocolate will also be provided, free of charge, for participants.

Kids can stop at the local Rod & Gun Sport Shop in Chetek to pick up a free box of waxies for the tournament.
