The award winners are:

▪ Keeper of the Plains award: The Wichita Art Museum Art Garden. The award recognizes outstanding architectural achievement that has contributed to the beauty of the community.
Winners of two other awards – the Uncommon Citizen award and the Exceptional Young Leader award – will be announced in the coming weeks. The Exceptional Young Leader award is new this year.
