If you haven’t heard already…

Ten outstanding volunteers are needed at the 2011 Iowa State Fair to be honored as the Iowans of the Day!

Please check your local post offices, libraries, newspapers, radio stations, television stations, county fairgrounds, volunteer organizations, main street offices, chamber of commerce, extension offices, or even ask your local Legislator for information about the 2011 Iowan of the Day program.

Since 1997, the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation and Cookies Food Products have come together in search of Iowans to recognize at each year’s Iowa State Fair. We look for shining stars across the state who personify the greatness of Iowa with a strong work ethic, loyalty to helping others, and an exceptional sense of Iowa pride.

Every year, ten nominees are named Iowan of the Day, receiving a special day of VIP treatment at the Fair. As Iowan of the Day, winners receive an introduction on the Anne & Bill Riley Stage, four Grandstand show tickets for their day, privilege to use the Iowan of the Day golf cart, VIP parking, accommodations at the Downtown Des Moines Marriott hotel, $200 cash and one-year subscriptions to The Iowan & Iowa Gardening magazines.

Download a nomination form here. Forms can also be found at your local post office or can be requested by calling 515-262-3111 ext. 678 or 1-800-450-3732. Nominate your shining star by July 1, 2011.

TEN days left to turn in your nominations to honor TEN deserving Iowans at the 2011 Iowa State Fair. (Only 50 days until the Fair!)

Always remember, Iowa is an amazing place to live and it’s the people who make it one of a kind!
