At the 2006 celebration, Victoria Hertko, chair of the Iowa Nurses Foundation, announced that the sponsorship money remaining after covering the cost of the event would fund a new education awards program. The 100 Great Iowa Nurses financial awards for education promote professional nursing in Iowa by supporting the continued education of future nurse leaders.

To qualify, the applicant must:

The funds we raise through our Celebration are used not only to honor the nurses you will meet at our annual Celebration, but they also support nursing advocacy, financial awards for nursing education, research for the bettering of lives, publication of nursing discoveries and the implementation of those discoveries. The 100 Great Iowa Nurses Celebration belongs to everyone who has met and been touched by an exceptional nurse!
