Some Iowa farm families are being honored with a special award at this year’s State Fair.  The Lukavsky Family from Washington is one of six being honored with The Way We Live Award as part of the fair.  Emily Brewer with the Iowa State Fair says this award is an award that is given to families that exemplify farm values in the state of Iowa.

Families are picked based on an essay that describes how living on a farm and choosing the occupation of farming has shaped their life.  The Lukavsky’s essay made them stand out the most from the others in the swine division.

The award will be presented at 10:30 Saturday morning, August 13th.  Each winning family receives a prize package including admission to the Fair and $250.
