It's called the "Northern Pines Sled Dog Race" and  students at Northwestern High School have been working to create the medals that will be given out to participants. Senior Ethan Brown says they will have a dogs paw engraved above the race logo. Students are also making glasses and key faabs. 

Senior Alex Smith says manufacturing is done by "Tiger Manufacturing," which is a student-run business at the school. In order to be a part of that, students have to first go through a series of classes. 

"We have a metals and woods division," Smith says. "Then, we move up to a metals 1 and woods 1."

The sled dog race is Saturday, Feb. 16 at the Northern Pines Golf Course. It's free to watch. Click here to learn more.
