The Missourian Award
The Missourian Award is a prestigious award that acknowledges the most accomplished citizens of Missouri.
To be selected, one must be born in the state of Missouri, or under exceptional circumstances, they may qualify by having spent significant time in the state and have made an outstanding contribution to the state or nation in one of the following fields: civics, business, arts or politics.
However, no person from the political field will be considered for this award until they have been out of an elected or appointed position for at least two years.
Proceeds from the Missourian Award Program benefit the American Heart Association.
