WAUSAU — The Wausau Woodchucks have teamed up with Aspirus Health and Aspirus Health Plan to bring a new program to the Wausau area, the Kid of the Month. This program recognizes outstanding area youths in a fun way, with one of them going on to be named Kid of the Year and the recipient of a $1,000 scholarship.

Children ages 6-12 are eligible to be nominated for Kid of the Month recognition. Anyone in the community can nominate kids they feel are doing extraordinary things in school, extracurricular activities, within the community or those who are using their talents and personality to make a difference in the lives of others.

Each Kid of the Month will be recognized with a feature story on the Woodchucks website, social media features and in the Woodchucks e-newsletter. All Kids of the Month will be treated to tickets, food and beverage at a Woodchucks game this summer.

The Woodchucks season starts May 30 on the road. The team’s first home game will be May 31.
