WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - A ‘Congratulations’ is in order for Janke Book Store and the Wausau River District for their Wisconsin Main Street awards.

Wausau is this year’s recipient of the Best Image Campaign Award for the ‘I Am Wausau’ initiative.

Local photographer Tim Gutknecht of Red Feather Photography helped capture feelings of residents during a changing time in our history and showcase Wausau’s diversity.

“I make my home here, I want to raise my family here. I want this to be a place everybody can enjoy,” Gutknecht said.

Wausau’s Janke Book Store was also named Best Business Success Story.

“After 100 years of the Janke Book Store being in our family, it’s a real honor to be recognized,” Jane Janke Johnson, co-owner of Janke Book Store, said.
