Do you know a volunteer age 50+ who is making a significant difference in Washington, DC?

Honor their dedication, commitment, and creativity with a nomination for the 2022 AARP DC Andrus Award for Community Service, AARP’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service!

The award recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich our community in ways that are consistent with AARP’s purpose, vision, and commitment to volunteer service and that inspire others to volunteer. Only one District of Columbia volunteer (or couple performing service together) can receive the Award.

Nominees for the Award 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. Volunteers receiving small stipends to cover costs associated with the volunteer activity are eligible.
  • The achievements, accomplishments, or service on which the nomination is based must reflect AARP’s vision and purpose.
  • The achievements, accomplishments or service on which the nomination is based must be replicable and provide inspiration for others to serve.

Nominations for the Award may be submitted by AARP members, volunteers, chapter or unit members, community partners and members of the public at large. AARP staff and Selection Committee members may not nominate candidates for the Award.

Nominations for this year’s award will be accepted through November 11, 2022, at the AARP DC office. Nomination forms are available by contacting Genaro Ruiz at gruiz@aarp.org or on the web at www.aarp.org/AndrusAward.
