AARP is now accepting nominations for its 2023 Nebraska Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors Nebraskans age 50 plus who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.
“AARP Nebraska is excited to shine a light on age 50-plus Nebraskans who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said Suzan DeCamp, volunteer state president for AARP Nebraska.
As part of the award, Nebraska’s Andrus Award recipient will designate a non-profit organization to receive a $2500 donation from AARP.
Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Nebraska 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 Nebraska Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- Nominee must be 50 years or older.
