The award recognizes a Hawkeye family—spanning at least three generations of University of Iowa graduates—that has substantially benefited from and continues to advocate for the UI, as well as contributes toward bettering the state of Iowa and its communities.

The winning family will receive the ultimate University of Iowa experience during Family Weekend, September 24–25, 2021, including 20 tickets to the Iowa vs. Colorado State football game. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, all on-campus activities are subject to the recommendations by the State of Iowa and the Iowa Board of Regents.

2021 Family Spirit Award nomination period is now closed.
