Now Here’s an
Engaged Audience!

Our readers will pay close attention to your ad as they join in our popular “Where’s the W?” contest.

TO ADD a little fun in every issue of Our Wisconsin, we challenge readers to find the three tiny W’s we hide in the ads.

    When they find all three, the readers can enter a drawing for prizes by identifying the page numbers where they found the W’s. Entry is allowed by paper mail only, and every issue nearly 12,000 readers enter!  

    That means 12% of our 100,000 paid subscribers take the time to scour the ads, write out a note, address it, stamp it, then put it in the mail.  Talk about audience engagement!

    Yes, readers love this contest. And as an advertiser you likely will too, if you choose to participate in this optional program.

    Knock $100 Off the Cost of Your Ad!  That discount is given to advertisers who agree to offer $100 worth of their product or services as a contest prize. The out-of-pocket cost to the advertiser, of course, is much less than that.

    Beyond the discount, participating companies enjoy more exposure…there’s three kinds:  First is the ad itself. Second is editorial mention on our contest page that describes the prize. The third mention comes the following issue, when the name of the winner appears with a description of the prize and the company offering it.  

    Be Part of the Fun!  See pages 44-45 of any issue for details.  Contact us today to reserve your space.


Frozen custard for a year is just one of the many prizes offered by advertisers each issue. Dozens of lucky winners take home prizes simply by sending in an entry to the "Where's the W?" contest. Are you ready to experience
why Our Wisconsin readers say "I Read the Ads First!"?
