Ashton Kutcher Nominated Maddie Poppe for the #TestIowaChallenge
Iowans need to stick together!
Earlier this week, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds kicked off the #TestIowaChallenge. Basically, she asking Iowans to go to TestIowa.com and take a short health assessment to see whether or not they should be tested for COVID-19. All Iowans are encouraged to participate, even if you're not showing any coronavirus symptoms. I did it this morning and it only took about three minutes.
The other part of the #TestIowaChallenge is encouraging other people in the state to take the assessment, as well. The Governor nominated five other Iowans when she posted her initial video, and one of those Iowans was Ashton Kutcher. Ashton, a native of Eastern Iowa, stepped up to the plate and accepted the challenge, posting a video of his own on social media:
Ashton nominated six other famous Iowans in his video including actor Jason Momoa, American Idol winner Maddie Poppe, actor Brandon Routh, the band Slipknot, Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann, and software engineer Marc Andreessen. Maddie Poppe seemed to be most shocked by the nomination, even though he referred to her as Maddie "Pope." She shared the video on Twitter, writing, "Wait...I....I am speechless.."
Maddie went on the complete the challenge, nominated five more people from Iowa.
If you want to participate in the #TestIowaChallenge, all you have to do is click HERE, do the assessment, and then use social media to nominate five other people. Don't forget to use the hashtag!
