Sheldon, Iowa — For the past week several hundred northwest Iowans have attempted to get qualified for the KIWA Valentine’s Day Sweetheart Giveaway, with 13 becoming finalists, but only one becoming the Grand Prize winner.
On the Valentine’s Day Edition of the KIWA Morning Show, the show’s crew drew the name of Ken Kooiman of Sheldon as the Grand Prize winner. An excited Kooiman visited the KIWA studios Friday morning to claim his prize package. He says he and his wife, Tonya, were listening to the show this morning to see who the winner would be, not thinking that it would be them.
Kooiman described their reaction upon hearing his name drawn.
He says he feels that today’s win was appropriate for a couple of reasons.
