Potential college students will once again have the opportunity to win tuition awards and free classes to Upper Iowa University at the 2016 Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. Prospective students are encouraged to visit UIU’s information booth and enter the respective drawings during the August 11-21 event.
For the 11th consecutive year, Upper Iowa faculty, staff and alumni will be operating the information booth from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each fair day in the Varied Industries Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. In addition to registering for prizes, the public is invited stop by to learn more about UIU and/or pick up Peacock gear.
High school juniors and seniors may register at the UIU State Fair booth for a chance to win one of two one-year tuition awards. To be eligible, the students must be 16 years of age by Sunday, Aug. 21, and not currently enrolled at Upper Iowa. The award is valid only for students who wish to attend classes on the Fayette Campus. The pair of tuition awards will be drawn Wednesday, Aug. 24.
In addition, current and future college students may register for a chance to win a free class at one of the UIU education centers, online, or through the self-paced degree program. One free class will be awarded each day.
