Each year, FOCUS applauds the efforts of 20 individuals, organizations and/or initiatives making a positive difference in the St. Louis region.

Too often, we get caught up in the challenges and issues facing our community. We all need a reminder now and again of the good that surrounds us, in the people and organizations who work tirelessly to make our region better. The annual What’s Right with the Region awards are a celebration of that.
