AARP now is accepting nominations for its 2014 Ohio Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors Ohioans age 50+ who are sharing their experience, talent and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
“AARP Ohio is excited to shine a light on 50+ Ohioans who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said Jane Taylor, AARP State Director.
Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Ohio 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. AARP Ohio Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet these 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 eligible; however, teams are not eligible.
- This is not a posthumous award.
