DES MOINES - Hit, run, score! Summer is near, and the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation needs your help to find this year's Iowan of the Day All-Star team lineup.
These exceptional all-stars will be honored at the 2014 Iowa State Fair Aug. 7-17. All-stars are those who step up to the plate as a captain in their community and go the extra innings to help those around them.
Iowan of the Day nominations should be based on acts of relentless community involvement, leadership and an outstanding sense of Iowa pride. All nominees must currently live in Iowa. Other materials such as testimonials, photos or newspaper articles that demonstrate the greatness of your nominee are welcomed. Each Iowan of the Day winner will receive his or her own day of recognition at the 2014 Iowa State Fair.
This day of honor includes an introduction on the Anne and Bill Riley Stage, VIP parking, gate admission, use of the Iowan of the Day golf cart and Grandstand show tickets for the evening of their award day. In addition, all winners will receive $200 in cash, accommodations at the Des Moines Downtown Marriott Hotel the night before their day of recognition, and a one-year subscription to The Iowan and Iowa Gardening magazine.
Help us recognize the people that are worthy and deserving of this all-star award. Nomination forms can be downloaded online at www.blueribbonfoundation.org/iotd or by calling the Blue Ribbon Foundation at 800-450-3732. All nominations are due by July 1.
