The Wallace Winkie Foundation is accepting nominations for the Lifelong Learner Hall of Fame through August 24. Inductees into the hall of fame will be honored for their contributions—through example, discovery, or leadership—to the promotion of lifelong learning (the process of gaining, either formally or informally, skills and knowledge throughout life) and its benefits. All Iowans past and present, of all ages, are eligible for nomination. A $500 donation to the nonprofit organization of the inductee’s choice accompanies the award. Inductees will be chosen by a committee of Iowans, who are leaders in the area of lifelong learning: Simon Estes, Simon Estes Foundation; Dan Gable, Dan Gable Wrestling Museum; Kelli McCarthy, University of Northern Iowa; Mary Muehl, AARP Iowa.
The Wallace Winkie Foundation is also working with the Heritage Area Agency on Aging, with support from AARP Iowa and the University of Northern Iowa’s Lifelong University program. For more information or to submit a nomination, visit our website or our Facebook event page.
