It's fun! Upbeat! And different from any magazine you've ever seen! Welcome to Our Iowa, the magazine that celebrates all that's great about living in Iowa.
Basically, Our Iowa allows Iowans to "talk to each other". Reading each issue is like sitting at your kitchen table and chatting with new friends over coffee, all of whom have interests similar to yours.
There are jaw-dropping photos of our beautiful land as well as some in-depth features. But the bulk of each issue is conversational, light-hearted "Here's what I think..." contributions shared by Iowans... people just like you.
Plus, you can win some great prizes. We're giving away a $20,000 kitchen makeover in our "Keys to the Kitchen" contest. Find the key hidden in each issue, and it might just unlock the door to a dream kitchen! Or enter the Lucky I Contest and win thousands of dollars in prizes given by advertisers each issue.
