The summer months in Iowa are filled with warm weather, the occasional (but very seldom) rain storm, and incredible programs and events hosted at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. A couple of the programs and events that we have been preparing for here at the Blue Ribbon Foundation include the Corndog Kickoff, volunteering at the State Fair, and the Iowan of the Day program.

July 1st is coming up soon which is the deadline for Iowan of the Day nominations. Past winners have a plethora of community involvement, volunteering, and demonstrate a strong work ethic. These attributes can be shown in the application by recommendation letters, newspaper articles, and even videos. I have greatly enjoyed reading about the incredible Iowans that have been nominated for this honor. Ten Iowans will be selected to be Iowan of the Day at the 2021 Iowa State Fair. Iowan of the Day recipients receive a prize package including:

  • $200 cash award
  • Accommodations at the Des Moines Marriott Hotel Downtown
  • Four Iowa State Fair Admission Tickets
  • Four Grandstand concert tickets
  • Privilege to use the Iowan of the Day golf cart for the day
  • Introduction and award presentation on the Anne & Bill Riley Stage

If you know someone who you think could be a 2021 Iowan of the Day, nominate them today!
