UPDATE: Iowa Corn Growers announce changes to Cy-Hawk trophy

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSTON (KWWL) -

At a press conference on Tuesday, the Iowa Corn Growers Association announced the recently unveiled Cy-Hawk trophy will be replaced.

Criticism began almost immediately after Iowa Corn unveiled the new design at the state fair on Friday.  The trophy depicts a farm family gathered around a bushel of corn.  It replaced the old trophy which had been awarded annually for more than 30 years.

A recent KWWL.com poll found 80% of respondents had a negative view of the new design with more than 60% saying they hated it.

The Iowa Corn Growers said an interim trophy will be used at the upcoming Iowa-Iowa State game on Sept. 10. Due to the amount of criticism, they will not use the trophy depicting the farm family. They have not yet decided what the interim trophy will look like.

Iowa Corn said fan input would be used in the process to select a new permanent trophy. The details about the design and input process will be announced at a later date.
