Once again, the Iowa International Center invites you to nominate an outstanding immigrant or refugee who has made a significant positive difference to the quality of life in Iowa. From our nominees, three will be selected as honorees at the Passport to Prosperity gala on Saturday, September 21, 2019, at the Olmsted Center at Drake University. One Emerging Leader Award will also be given to honor a young immigrant or refugee, aged 17-24, to recognize their dedication and hard work as they help their family and community transition to a successful life in Iowa.
The nomination deadline is Friday, May 24, 2019. For the Emerging Leader Award, nominations are due by Wednesday, June 12, 2019. Submit your nomination via this form, and email two (2) letters of support to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Letters of Support for [Nominee].”
Thank you for supporting the recognition of incredible immigrants and refugees in Iowa! We look forward to honoring those who have given and overcome so much to become exemplary members of our community.
