The Iowa State Fair is looking for nominations for its “Iowan of the Day.” Nicole Rathbun of the Iowa Blue Ribbon Foundation says they pick 10 Iowans from 10 different districts of the state. The people who’re chosen get recognized during the first ten days of the fair and get a golf cart to drive around the fairgrounds as well as other prizes. Rathbun says they’re looking for Iowans who’re special. Rathbun says nominees must be residents of Iowa. She says past nominees have been nominated for helping in their communities and making a difference. Rathbun says anyone can nominate someone to be an “Iowan of the Day.” You can find the nomination form on-line at or call 800-450-3732. The 2006 fair runs from August 10th to the 20th.
