The Community Colleges for Iowa awards program is designed to recognize and honor outstanding Community College Trustees, Equity Programs, Presidents, Faculty Members, and Professional Board Staff Members. Community Colleges for Iowa encourages local boards to submit nominations. 

In 2023, the Awards process is changing. Some awards will be given to recipients during our annual summer conference and others will be given during our brand-new Community Colleges for Iowa Convention, happening for the first time this Fall. Secondly, CCforIowa will no longer be sending completed award nominations to ACCT for national awards consideration. It will be at the discretion of each College to do so to allow more Iowan nominations to be considered for the national awards.

Nominations for the Kibbie Award are due March 13, 2023.

Nominations for the Staff, Faculty, Diversity/Equity, Business, Innovation, and the Alumni Awards are due October 2, 2023.
