Having a great mentor can change your life—so can being one.


The Iowa Women’s Foundation is kicking off #NationalMentoringMonth by celebrating the women who recognize talent, ambition and passion in those around them, and who do their best to help others live up to their potential.


Help us celebrate, too! Starting tomorrow, we’re hosting a special giveaway to say thank you to Iowa’s women mentors, open to any women who has ever had, or ever been a mentor. Participants are asked to share a story about their mentor/mentee or post of photo of themselves and their mentor/mentee in the comments section. A winner will be selected at random, and will receive 2 FREE TICKETS to the 2018 IWF Annual Luncheon, including a meet-and-greet with the keynote speaker (TBA)!


Here’s how it works:

  1. From Jan 4-16, “like” our official contest post. To enter to win the contest prize, contestants must comment on the post. You may thank your mentor/mentee by either: sharing a short story/anecdote about your relationship, or posting a picture or short video of you and your mentor/mentee in the comments section.
  2. Throughout the week, we encourage you to follow the contest and read through the inspiring stories. Remember to share the love—like or comment on others’ posts and encourage your local mentoring community!
  3. On Jan 17, we will select a winner at random, and announce the winner on the IWF Facebook page.
