The deadline to nominate an outstanding individual for AARP’s most prestigious volunteer award is July 31, 2023.
In addition, AARP Iowa will donate $1,000 on behalf of the Andrus Award winner to an eligible non-profit organization of their choosing.
“AARP Iowa is excited to shine a light on 50+ volunteers in our state who are using what they’ve learned in life to make a difference in the lives around them,” said Brad Anderson, AARP Iowa State Director.
AARP Iowa Andrus Award for Community Service nominees must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Nominations will be evaluated by a selection committee based on how the volunteer’s work positively impacts the lives of people, improves the community, reflects AARP’s vision and mission, and inspires others to volunteer. The award recipient will be announced in early fall.
