Wausau is one of only 50 communities in the nation to advance to the quarterfinals of the "America's Best Communities" competition. The final winner will receive $3 million for a community revitalization project.

As one of two Wisconsin communities to advance out of almost 140 applications, Wausau will receive $50,000 and a corporate sponsor partner to help further develop the strategic community and economic revitalization plans outlined in the initial application. These plans were developed by a group of individuals representing tourism, business, government, education and young professionals.
