CHEYENNE — AARP Wyoming seeks nominations for the 2019 Andrus Award, the state’s premiere community service award for those age 50 and older.

To nominate someone for the Andrus Community Service Award, use the webform available at: https://www.aarp.org/forms/aarp-andrus-award-for-community-service. Award nominations are due by July 15.

The Andrus Award, named after AARP founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, recognizes individuals who are sharing their experience, talent, and skills to enrich their communities in ways that are consistent with AARP’s mission, vision, and commitment to volunteer service.

Only one volunteer per state (or couple performing service together) can receive the award each year and the recipient must live in the awarding state.

The award winner is required to be at least 50 years old, and the achievements, accomplishments or service on which the nomination is based must reflect AARP’s vision and mission. This is not a posthumous award.

For more information on the process, contact Tanya Johnson, AARP Wyoming’s Associate State Director for Outreach and Local Advocacy at 307-214-7965 or tajohnson@aarp.org.
