Some students from Superior are headed to Japan later this summer and they hope brownies and cookies will help cover their costs.

The Superior Sister City Commission is sending four student delegates this August to Ami-machi for one week. Ami-machi is the city's sister city and is located on a large lake, like Superior.

Wednesday, while the Richard I. Bong Historical Center hosted an open house, the students held a bake sale to help pay for their flights. The students haven't traveled much before, and say they can't wait to explore Japan.

"We are going to go over there for a week and we're going to be staying with a host family. We'll be doing different ceremonies... and doing activities with our host families as well," explained Creede McClellan, a student at Superior High School.

The students hope to raise $2,100 each to cover their travel costs. Wednesday, the students sold all of their baked goods and raised $300.
