The second annual Silicon Prairie Awards are coming up! These awards celebrate the region’s startup community, talented designers and developers, startup-friendly service providers, and other strong community advocates.
This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, August 29 at 6 p.m. at the Hoyt Sherman Place in Des Moines, Iowa and will feature Dave Knox, co-founder of The Brandery, as the keynote speaker.
If you’re located in the Silicon Prairie, or you’re looking to make the trip (it’s worth it, we promise), you can buy tickets here!
If you aren’t convinced yet, here are a few pictures from last year’s awards:

Whether you plan on going or not, we’d love for you to nominate people/companies/teams for the awards. Nominations close July 26 at 11:59 PM.
We especially encourage you to nominate a certain hosting company for the New Startup of the Year, Startup Technologist of the Year, and Startup Designer of the Year (for Rick Knudtson, of course)! 😉
