BENTON COUNTY, IOWA — Do you know an everyday hero in our community who is working to create positive environments? We want to hear about it!

Benton County Courthouse

The Benton County Family Nurturing Council is looking to recognize everyday heroes — of any age—in our community through the ‘Faces of Benton County’ campaign! Do you know of a child, parent/caregiver, family, or community member who has achieved something positive recently that deserves recognition? This campaign is a way to share and highlight such stories.

There are many positive achievements happening on a daily basis in Benton County — kids offering a friendly smile to everyone they meet, community members keeping kids safe, family members maintaining sobriety, parents doing all they can to create caring, loving environments, and so much more.

“Faces of Benton County” recipients will receive a congratulatory gift from the Family Nurturing Council, as well as the opportunity to be featured on both our website and Facebook page via photographs and a story! Any “Faces of Benton County” nominee may choose to keep their story private and would still be eligible for a congratulatory gift.

Nomination forms are available online:

To obtain a paper nomination form or for more information, please contact Ruby Bodeker with the Family Nurturing Council at 319-350-7855.

Let’s highlight the positive stories that make our community thrive!
