The deadline is approaching to submit nominations for the 2024 Iowan of the Day Awards at the Iowa State Fair. Ten people will be singled out for the title during this year’s August event. The fair’s Chloe Hamaker says the Iowan of the Day program is an opportunity to recognize those people who are positively impacting their towns and their neighbors.

Winners of the Iowan of the Day receive a day of recognition at the fair, gate admission for four, 200-dollars in cash, use of a golf cart at the fair, V-I-P parking, and more. Hamaker says they have seen individuals from six to 90 years old receive the recognition.

Nominations from 2021, 2022 and 2023 will also be reconsidered. While there are no age limitations, Hamaker says nominees do need to be Iowa residents, and nominating someone is easy.

Nomination forms are available at www.blueribbonfoundation.org. All nominations are due by July 1st.
