ROSHOLT (WAOW)--This week's winner are the students involved in the Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America program at Rosholt High School.

Around 60 students are involved in the organization, and each year they bring the holiday to life with a winter wonderland.

This year, they decorated the mall in Stevens Point with bows, lights, and trees. and decorated an enchanted forest.

The students invited previous well as businesses from around the area to participate with the set up..and clean up...they even coordinated volunteers to greet visitors.

The forest had 44 Trees, and no two were the same Each tree had it's own personal touch, with different handmade ornaments and decorations.

19 of the trees were donated by other local organizations.

The Enchanted Forest has become a community tradition with hundreds of visitors each year.

The student's volunteered hundreds of hours to create all the holiday displays, greet visitors, and clean up after the event was over.

We had the opportunity to go visit the students in Rosholt yesterday, such a wonderful group of kids, who truly do an outstanding job with their involvement in the community.

This is a great example of students being leaders outside of the classroom, and putting their creativity and organizational skills to good use!
