LANSING -- AARP Michigan is accepting nominations for its 2019 Michigan Andrus Award for Community Service, which honors 50-and-older Michiganders who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich the lives of their community members.

“AARP Michigan is excited to shine a light on volunteers who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said AARP Michigan State Director Paula D. Cunningham.

Nomination deadline is July 15. Nomination forms are available at www.aarp.org/AndrusAward, or by calling Karen Kafantaris at 517-267-8916.

The award is named for AARP Founder Ethel Percy Andrus.

Nominations will be evaluated by AARP Michigan volunteers based on how the nominee’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 Michigan Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following 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.

· Couples or partners who perform service together are also eligible; however, teams are not eligible.

· This is not a posthumous award.

If you have questions about eligibility and award rules, visit aarp.org/mi, email to MIAARP@aarp.org, or call AARP Michigan at 1-866-227-7448.
