2021 What’s Right with the Region Awards
Each year, FOCUS applauds the efforts of the individuals, organizations and/or initiatives making a positive difference in the St. Louis region with our What’s Right With the Region Awards Celebration.
This event shines a bright light on those who are advancing the equity, prosperity, collaboration, and strength of our communities. Our recipients are selected from nominations submitted by the community and chosen by a volunteer committee of regional leaders.
Save the date for the 24th Annual What’s Right with the Region Awards on May 13, 2021, and be sure to submit your nominations before Feb. 5, 2021!
