WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Even in the dead of winter, city leaders have their eyes on the summer.
All Wisconsin Rapids residents are invited to enter into the Community Snowman Competition, presented by the Mayor’s Youth Council. This contest will challenge entrees to make a snowman that is dressed as if it is headed to catch some sun at the Aquatic Center.
To enter into the competition, each person or family must fill out an entry form in the Google docs at the following link:
Bonus points can be earned for entries that are shared on Facebook by tagging Wisconsin Rapids Aquatics Center with a creative picture. Submissions will be judged by Mayor Zach Vruwink, Fire Chief Scott Young, and Police Chief Erman Blevins. The top 5 submissions will receive a prize.
”This fun and engaging activity celebrates winter and inspires us to look toward summer and the opening of the aquatic recreation facility, said Mayor Zach Vruwink. “The Youth Council is proud to host this fun competition!”
Deadline for contest entries is Feb. 29.
This contest is sponsored by Cravings Coffee, Terrace Custom Builders, and Rapids Ford Lincoln.

Steps to obtain an ID to vote in the Spring Primary explained
Most Wisconsin voters already have some form of ID needed to vote, including a Wisconsin driver license or ID. There is no separate “voter ID” and a federally-compliant REAL ID card is not required for voting purposes. The Wisconsin Elections Commission explains the acceptable options to bring to the polls on its website.
The first stop for voters looking to get their first Wisconsin ID should be the Wisconsin Department of Transportation Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) website at wisconsindmv.gov/idcards.
Next, bring the required documents to apply. Certain documents, such as a birth certificate, proof of identity and Wisconsin residency, are necessary to obtain an official Wisconsin ID card (see wisconsindmv.gov/identity-list). If all documentation is not readily available, the ID Petition Process (IDPP) can be used to obtain a receipt valid for voting while the remaining documents or verifications are obtained. The voter should bring any documentation available to the DMV and complete the required application.
Finally, a receipt valid for Voting purposes will be provided and can be used to show at the polls.
DMV offers this IDPP service and ID card for voting purposes free of charge. Anyone who doesn’t have an ID to vote in the spring primary should start the process now. DMV’s toll-free voter ID hotline at (844) 588-1069 is available for questions on obtaining an ID to vote. Questions regarding voter eligibility, poll locations, voter registration information or other election information can be directed to the Wisconsin Elections Commission http://elections.wi.gov/.
DMV’s website has a locator to find the nearest DMV and check wait times.
