ARNOLDS PARK, Iowa (KUOO) - The annual University of Okoboji Winter Games are just over 50 days away.

With the event fast approaching, the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is now looking for some help.

Our news partner KUOO Radio says the chamber of commerce is accepting nominations for cheerleaders for the winter games, which take place Jan. 27 through Jan. 30.

Kiley Zankowski with the chamber says there are some qualification requirements.

“Nominations are open the entire month of December. You can head over to to learn more. But we do ask that all nominees are at least 18 years old and a Dickinson County resident,” said Zankowski.

Zankowski says cheerleaders have been a crucial part of the Winter Games dating all the way back to 1988.

The final part of the cheerleader selection process will be held in January.
