The Principal Riverwalk Bridge will soon have a new name and some new décor. The Center Street Bridge will officially be called The Iowa Women of Achievement Bridge. It will feature plaques honoring Iowa women who have been positive agents for change, achieved extraordinary accomplishments, or inspired future generations.

Anyone can nominate a woman to be honored.  A panel of judges will then select the first honoree(s) and they will be recognized at an unveiling ceremony on the bridge.

A new honoree will be selected each year following the dedication.

The deadline to nominate is April 1; instructions for how to submit your nomination are available here.
