Andrus Award
Ethel Percy Andrus

AARP Idaho is now accepting nominations for its 2018 Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors Idahoans 50 years and older who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.

Nominations will be evaluated by the Idaho state office 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. Last year, Janie Nirk of Potlach received the 2017 award.

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.

Please contact the AARP Idaho state office aarpid@aarp.org for further information and a nomination form.  The application deadline is June 1, 2018.
