We are proud to announce the winner of the City’s 125th Anniversary logo contest is Sarah Sallmann, a City of Waukesha resident. The City engaged residents in the monthlong contest to create a logo reflecting the theme of the celebration “Looking Back – Reaching Forward.” More than 1,600 votes were cast and Sallmann was chosen by the public for her design, winning the $100 prize.
“Congratulations to Sarah for doing a great job capturing elements of the City of Waukesha,” said Shawn Reilly, Mayor of Waukesha. “We had some really innovative entries and appreciate the public taking the time to choose how we represent the City’s 125th anniversary throughout 2021.”
"As a lifelong resident of Waukesha, I’m excited to share my art with the community and help celebrate the 125th anniversary of this wonderful city,” said Sallmann. Born and raised in the city of Waukesha, Sallmann attended school in Waukesha, graduated from WCTC, and is currently an art director.
