Emily Letterman, Features Editor
If you followed the hashtag #SBJD12 on Twitter last night, you shared in the excitement. If you didn’t, you missed one heck of a party.

The DoubleTree Hotel played host to more than 200 people for the 2015 Springfield Business Journal Dynamic Dozen awards honoring the area’s fastest growing companies and the individuals who drive growth across the region. The game-show themed night included audience trivia from emcee Eldon Combs, host of “The Trivia King Show” on Jock 98.7 FM, music from “The Price is Right” and a countdown of businesses from 12 to one.

Emily Letterman, Features Editor

It was a party with a cause last night as Springfield Business Journal celebrated the 2015 class of 40 Under 40.

With nearly 450 in attendance, the Ramada Plaza Hotel & Oasis Convention Center played host to the 17th annual awards ceremony, which honored individuals under the age of 40 for their personal accomplishments in civic and professional arenas.
