Congratulations to the 2016 Cornerstone Award Finalists!

In Cornerstone Awards, Events, News by EDCKC Staff

The Cornerstone Awards Program was initiated over 27 years ago to recognize investments by companies in Kansas City, Missouri. After more than 25 years of presenting the Cornerstone Awards, the Economic Development Corporation has updated the criteria for the 2016 awards, as well as the number of award winners to be selected.

New Awards Criteria
Nominees must be located in Kansas City, Missouri, and may include people, projects, businesses, programs/initiatives and events that closely align with the mission of the Economic Development Corporation:  “To drive economic development and create an environment in which businesses and residents prosper in Kansas City, Missouri.”

Finalists were selected based on their ability to demonstrate the highest and best impact in improving economic development and growth in Kansas City, Mo. The EDC Marketing/Cornerstone Awards Committee will select the final award winners in April and awards will be presented at the May 11th event, where a public vote will be tallied to name the number one project in Kansas City, Missouri in 2015. Congratulations to all the finalists!
