Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus: annual award named for AARP Founder

The deadline for nominations for the 2014 Andrus Award for Community Service awarded by AARP in Missouri has been extended until July 3!

AARP is accepting nominations for its 2014 Missouri Andrus Award for Community Service. The award honors 50+ Missourians who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members. The award is named after AARP founder Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, and the award recipient will receive $1500 to donate to the charity or organization of his/her choice.

AARP Missouri Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Nominee must be 50 years or older.
  • The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must have been performed on a volunteer basis, without pay.
  • The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must reflect AARP’s vision and mission.
  • Couples or partners who perform service together are also eligible; however, teams are not eligible.
  • This is not a posthumous award.

Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Missouri based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission, and inspired other volunteers. The award recipient will be announced in early fall.

Contact Sue Cerny, scerny@aarp.org, 816.260.2204, for further information and a nomination form. Again, don't forget that the new application deadline is July 3, 2014.
