From the farmers in the fields to researchers finding cures for cancer, Iowa is home to the most dedicated and hard-working individuals. The University of Iowa Athletic Department is committed to honoring and recognizing individuals who proudly represent the Hawkeye State.
The department is accepting nominations of individuals who best embody the values, determination, and integrity that Iowa stands for. Whether it is an individual who has made a significant impact in their community or contributed to a significant accomplishment, we are looking for people who consistently fight to represent themselves, their families, and their state.
This year, seven individuals will be selected and recognized during a home football game at Kinnick Stadium.

The All-American work ethic that defines Hawkeye Athletics has deep roots in the tradition of farming in our state. The success of Iowa farmers has been hard-fought with generations of work, sweat, and sacrifice. Every year, Hawkeye Athletics celebrates Iowa’s Farmers at the ANF Black and Gold Spirit game. This year's game is set for September 23 when Penn State visits Kinnick Stadium. Stay tuned to learn how Hawkeye Fans across the nation can show how they Fight for Iowa’s Farmers throughout September!
