Annual Awards Event

The Iowa Job Honor Awards features an annual awards event celebrating Iowans who have overcome significant barriers to employment, and the employers who hire them. This ceremony culminates an annual nominating campaign.

The First Annual Iowa Job Honor Awards was conducted in June 2014 on the final day of the Iowa Association of Business and Industry's annual "Taking Care of Business" conference. The awards were presented to standing ovations in front of several hundred business leaders in the beautiful Paramount Theater in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Now in its fourth year, the mission of the Iowa Job Honor Awards remains constant: to rekindle hope and energize the work ethic across Iowa, through the celebration of a new kind of hero. 2017 event details will be released in Spring 2017.
