Nominations sought for Iowa Character Awards

Des Moines, Iowa – Just less than a month remains for Iowans to nominate someone — or an organization — which lives up to the six pillars of character. Those are: Caring, Citizenship, Fairness, Respect, Responsibility and Trustworthiness. Amy Smit is spokeswoman for the Robert D. and Billie Ray Center at Drake University, which sponsors the Iowa Character Awards.

The awards recognize the role of Iowans who have lived up to serving their communities and the state. Smit says it’s simple to nominate someone.

The deadline for nominations is May 1st. The winners will be announced in June with the recognition banquet to be held July 20th in Altoona.
