Below is the letter I received with this award:
First, I would like to congratulate you on your selection as a 2015 Kansas City Award Winner.
The Kansas City Award Program was created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of businesses and organizations in and around Kansas City. Our mission is to raise the profile of exemplary companies and entrepreneurs among the press, the business community, and the general public. The selection process does not include nominations, voting, contests or surveys. The Award Program uses only empirical data supplied by independent third-parties as input into our award algorithm.
Selection as a 2015 Award Winner is determined by the marketing success of your organization in your local community and business category. The Kansas City Award Program uses information gathered internally in conjunction with third-party data as a part of its selection process. Notification to other award winners in Kansas City will be made over the next several weeks. After all award recipients have been notified, we will post the complete list of winners on our website.
In addition, we will post your organization on our website as a 2015 Award Winner and link back to your website; allowing new customers to find you. As an Award recipient, there is no membership requirement.
