What is “The Wisconsin Way”?

“The Wisconsin Way” is a shorthand reference, used both statewide and nationwide,  referring to an improved business climate, commonsense government reforms, commitment to economic growth, and the improvement of the overall quality-of-life. Over the past several years, Wisconsinites from both the public and private sector have shown leadership, courage, and passion, in their efforts to make our state a better place to live for all of its citizens. “The Wisconsin Way” has been so effective in defining government’s mission and spurring economic activity, many other states have modeled their laws, policies, and reforms after Wisconsin’s example.

“The Wisconsin Way Awards”

The inaugural Wisconsin Way Awards, presented by News-Talk 1130 WISN and Annex Wealth Management, are offered to Wisconsinites or Wisconsin-based institutions that have made significant contributions to our state’s status, vitality, and livability. The Awards are offered in humble recognition of the profound impact of those contributions. The Wisconsin Way Awards shine a spotlight on exceptional Wisconsinites who have shown dedication to serve others in a positive and productive manner, doing so with sincere humility and good will.
