Annual Silver Citizen Award call for nominations
August 16, 2021
An event every week that begins at 1:00am on Monday and Thursday, repeating until August 26, 2021
To encourage and support older adults for their contributions to their communities, the Clark County Commission on Aging has established a program to recognize older adults by means of an annual award typically presented at a Commission on Aging event. The award recognizes the valuable contributions older adults make to the vitality of the community and is open to any county resident 65 years or older who has enhanced the community through their life’s work, engagement of others, volunteerism and or other impactful acts of service to the community for any age group. Service in any field of endeavor will be considered (e.g., education, radio, television, business, healthcare, art, music, journalism, faith-based, athletics, politics, volunteer service). A couple may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in service and various community endeavors. All nominations must be received no later than 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26, 2021. Award criteria and nomination forms can be found at www.clark.wa.gov/aging. The Commission on Aging, supported by the Clark County Council, is a nine-member volunteer group that implements the Aging Readiness Plan and provides leadership addressing needs of aging community members.
