Nominations Now Open for 2020 Andrus Award

AARP Kentucky is excited to announce that nominations are now being accepted for the 2020 AARP Kentucky Andrus Award for Community Service -- AARP’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.

The award is to recognize outstanding Kentucky residents age 50+ who are making a powerful difference in their communities in ways that are consistent with the AARP purpose, vision, and commitment to volunteer service and inspire others to volunteer.

You have seen and experienced the impact that a special, caring and experienced volunteer can have on lives, programs, their community, and society. This is an opportunity to recognize that impact and to let an outstanding volunteer know that his or her service is valued.

Nominations will be accepted through July 15, 2020 and evaluated by the Kentucky state office based on how the volunteer’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 and will receive a $2000 check to be donated to the eligible nonprofit of their choosing. The runner-up will receive a $500 check to be donated to the eligible nonprofit of their choosing.
