25 Under 25 Award

Prairie Design Build has been recognized as part of Thinking Bigger Business Media, Inc.’s 2016 Class of the 25 Under 25 Award.


In its 15th year, the awards program recognizes 25 outstanding Kansas City businesses with under 25 employees. Until the 25 Under 25 Awards, no formal recognition program existed in the Kansas City area that specifically targeted business with fewer than 25 employees.

In order to be nominated for this award, companies must employ fewer than 25 full-time employees, operate a for-profit business for three or more years, and be located within the Greater Kansas City area.

Qualified nominees must then provide additional support materials that are reviewed by an independent panel of judges consisting of area business leaders. The panel reviews the applicants and selects the final 25 honorees according to financial stability, ability to overcome adversity and challenges, community involvement, distinguishing or defining characteristics, and company vision. Nearly 1,500 nominations were submitted.

We are deeply honored and excited to be recognized with our fellow 25 Under 25 Award winners. More information and the full list of this year’s winners can be found here.
