Looking for the Stars of the Show

Lights… Camera…Action…the Iowa State Fair is ready to roll but is in need of the stars of the show. The Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation and Cookies Food Products are searching for ten outstanding volunteers to be the next Iowan of the Day at the Iowa State Fair. These star community members will be honored at the 2011 Fair August 11 – 21.

I have been contacting volunteer organizations since March to collect nomination applications for Iowan of the Day candidates. I am currently working on Media Kits for television stations, newspapers and radio stations from around the state.

Iowa is a great place to live and there are plenty of hard-working people across the state that deserve to be honored. If you know someone in your community that would be a deserving Iowan of the Day, please nominate them.

There are nomination forms, a complete list of winners and sample nomination applications available on the Blue Ribbon Foundation website at blueribbonfoundation.org/iotd. You can also contact me at drew@blueribbonfoundation.org or 515 – 262 – 3111 Ext. 678 with any questions.  Nominations are due July 1, 2011.

I look forward to receiving some outstanding Iowan of the Day nominations!
