2017 Photos

Three outstanding honorees were recognized at the Iowa International Center’s Passport to Prosperity Gala and Awards celebration, held Saturday, October 14, 2017 in the upper Olmsted Center at Drake University in Des Moines.

Passport to Prosperity recognizes immigrants and refugees in Iowa who make Iowa a better place to live through their significant contributions to the economic, social and cultural fabric of our communities. The 2017 event included an awards presentation to our three honorees, a dinner reflecting the cultures of each recipient, as well as special video stories highlighting the inspiring lives of these global Iowans.
