Jerry Hart Award
The Jerry Hart Award is presented to an outstanding associate member of NUCA of Iowa in recognition of the member’s outstanding efforts and their support of the association. This award is named after one of our very outstanding associate members, the late Jerry Hart who represented Griffen Pipe in Iowa for years before his death in 2004.
Members are nominated by their peers and the Board of Directors cast a vote to select the final winner. The winner is presented with the Jerry Hart Award at our Annual Banquet, typically in February.

Hall of Fame Award
The Hall of Fame Award is presented to an outstanding contractor member. The award was created to give special recognition to contractors who have provided exceptional long-term leadership to the association. Nominees must be NUCA members, and must have served on the NUCA of Iowa Board of Directors for at least five years. Once these basic requirements have been met, selection to the Hall of Fame Award is based on impact on the industry, receipt of other NUCA awards, service on the board beyond five years, extraordinary performance on a committee or task force, support for NUCA programs, and other factors.
The Awards Committee – comprised of NUCA of Iowa’s Executive Committee – select the winner(s).
