Now Accepting Nominations for 2018 Kansas Katalyst

What is a Kansas Katalyst?

A “catalyst” is an added substance that increases the rate of chemical reaction. Synonyms include the words stimulus, spark or spur. We therefore describe a “Kansas Katalyst” as a person who inspires others to do something faster, better and with a larger result; someone who sparks inspiration.

If you have an inspiring story about an incredible Kansan, we’d like to hear from you. Submit your nominations at by December 15th.
