Innis Maggiore, the nation's leading agency in the practice of positioning, was presented the 2014 Business for the Arts award at the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce's 100th anniversary gala on Friday.

Presented by ArtsinStark, the award recognizes Innis Maggiore for its community and civic support in the Stark County area.
