Junior Achievement of Eastern Iowa is currently accepting nominations for three elite individuals to be inducted as Laureates and one to be inducted as an Entrepreneur into the Corridor Business Hall of Fame. The event is to be held September 19, 2024. Nominations for these prestigious awards will be accepted through Friday, March 29, 2024.

The 2024 Corridor Business Hall of Fame, marks the 25th anniversary of celebrating distinguished business leaders who have established a legacy of leadership within their industries and our community. Three laureates and one emerging entrepreneur will be inducted into the Corridor Business Hall of Fame, joining the elite group of past honorees, on Thursday, September 19, 2024.

Through leadership, vision, and innovation, the laureates and entrepreneur have influenced much of our community’s economic development and social welfare. These distinguished business leaders were nominated by community members, and then selected by an independent committee. These individuals have lived and worked in Eastern Iowa and epitomize five key standards of excellence:

Their IMPACT on their industry or organization;
Their INTEGRITY as an ethical business leader;
Their commitment to bettering the COMMUNITY as a whole;
Their LEADERSHIP qualities, which allow them to be exemplary role models for all of us – especially the children of Iowa;
Their ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT in starting or significantly advancing local businesses.

This elite group of Iowa leaders will be inducted at a black tie dinner held in their honor. Highlights of the evening include video biographies of each laureate and students from local schools will serve as hosts and escorts to reinforce the purpose of the event, to inspire children to visualize success.
