This special evening recognizes three kinds of achievement: individual, corporate and architectural.
The Uncommon Citizen Award, the most prestigious award, recognizes an individual's effort not only for their role in business, but for their participation in cultural, civic, social, and philanthropic activities.
The Ad Astra Award, created in 2001, honors outstanding achievements in the community that are worthy and deserving of recognition, but which aren’t necessarily aligned with any of the awards already established.
The Spirit of Wichita Award is given to a past Over the Years Award recipient that continues to show exceptional commitment to the community.
The Over the Years Award is given to businesses and organizations with long-standing performances as good corporate citizens and major contributors to the community's economic well-being.
The Keeper of the Plains Award recognizes an architectural project, completed by a firm, organization or individual, that has contributed to the beauty of our community.
