We strive to highlight the uniqueness of rural Missouri, and to showcase the bigger picture of what Small Town America really is, and why it shouldn’t be overlooked, overshadowed, or under appreciated.

Each year, communities will be nominated and voted on by Missourians to become our annual “Featured Five” communities. Each of our Featured Five will work with Missouri Humanities on the following:

  • A short video about their community
  • An hour-long podcast, roundtable-style
  • A feature in our bi-annual publication, MoHumanities
  • A highlight reel, featuring all five communities, to be shown during our annual gala
