Nomination will be taken over the month of July 2017 and voting will take place during the month of August 2017 with the award being presented during the festival.

Please nominate for the individual or businesses from the Kansas City area that best embraces the following ideals:

  • Community (Earth) –We are never going to be able to practice openly if we don’t know anyone else in our local Pagan communities. We need to weave networking webs in our cities, in our towns, in our rural areas. We need these webs to support one another.
  • Education (Air) – We are never going to be able to practice our spiritual paths openly if we don’t give the public accurate information about what we do and do not do.
  • Activism (Fire) – People aren’t necessarily going to go out of their way to find out what Pagans really do. We have to have the courage to act on our convictions and do what we need to do.
  • Charity (Water) – We know that what we do returns to us. We need to demonstrate this by offering compassion to our communities where it is needed. When we share our own abundance, we show that we trust the Gods to share abundance with us in return.
