Applications open for Iowan of Day program

Applications are being accepted for Iowa State Fair’s Iowan of the Day recognition program.

The program recognizes 10 residents from around the state who “demonstrate a strong dedication to their community, outstanding character and work ethic (and) personal achievement,” according to a news release.

The recognition program was not held in 2020 because the fair was canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.

Each of the 10 Iowan of the Day winners will be awarded a day of recognition at the 2021 Iowa State Fair, held Aug. 12 to 22 in Des Moines.

Nomination forms are available at BlueRibbonFoundation. org/iotd or by calling Megan Decker at 515-262-3111, ext. 378.

All nominations must be postmarked by July 1. Nominations from 2017, 2018 and 2019 will be reconsidered.
