Nominations Accepted - Andrus Award for Community Service

Andrus Award

AARP Hawaii is accepting nominations for its annual Andrus Award for Community Service. The award honors residents age 50-plus who share their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of others in the community. The 2015 Andrus Award recipient will be honored at an event later this year.

“AARP Hawaii is delighted to shine a light on Hawaii residents age 50-plus who are making a difference in the community,” said AARP Hawaii State President Gerry Silva.

Nominations will be evaluated by a panel comprised of AARP Hawaii staff and volunteers. The selection will be based on how the volunteer’s work has improved the community, supported AARP’s vision and mission (see below) and inspired other volunteers. Nominees do not have to be AARP members, nor are they required to have volunteered for AARP activities.

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

  • Nominees 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.
  • Nominees must live in the awarding state.
  • This is not a posthumous award.


Please use the online form to submit your nomination. The application deadline is Monday, June 15, 2015. Results will be announced later this summer. For more information contact AARP Hawaii Director of Community Outreach Jackie Boland at or call 808-545-6003.
