The Wallace Winkie Foundation established the Lifelong Learner Hall of Fame to celebrate and honor Iowans who have made a lasting impact on the quality of life in Iowa through their contributions to lifelong learning. The foundation is working with Heritage Area Agency on Aging, along with AARP Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa’s Lifelong University
Nominations for the 2018 Hall of Fame are being accepted through August 24 of this year. Nominees may be current or past Iowa residents of any age, or they may be Iowa organizations. Nominators may be family, friends, or admirers.
The foundation will recognize inductees in an October ceremony and will make a one-time minimum donation of $500 to the charitable organization or institution of each inductee’s choice. Nomination forms are available on the foundation’s website parkitvirtualmuseum.com or on facebook.com/LifelongLearnerHallofFame.
