WAUSAU (WAOW) -
The University of Wisconsin Marathon County has a brand new logo.
The school held a husky logo design contest earlier this year. The winning image was unveiled Wednesday afternoon. The design was created by a former UWMC student and Wausau West graduate. The new logo will replace the old one created in the 1980's. The winner of the contest says he wanted to create something that represented his school.
"I really wanted to create something that was bold and something that was easily recognizable," said winning artist Caleb Pagel. "But I also wanted to keep it kind of simple and kind of sleek looking."
The contest received more than 100 entries. Pagel was awarded $1,000 for his logo.
