2010 Outstanding Senior Volunteer Award


Fri, Jun 11th, 2010
Posted in Business Announcements

Nominations are now being accepted for Fillmore County residents to identify senior citizens who provide outstanding volunteer service.

The Minnesota Board on Aging, along with the Minnesota State Fair Board and the Minnesota Federation of County Fairs, began honoring outstanding senior citizen volunteers in the 1960's. The Fillmore County Fair Board is looking to the public to nominate individuals who contribute significantly to their communities.

Outstanding seniors are judged on leadership, diversity of accomplishments, variety of volunteer services performed, quantity of accomplishments and quality of activities. Only volunteer services performed after the age of 65 are considered by the judges.

Two individuals will be selected at the county level and will be recognized at the county fair on Saturday, July 24th, 2010. The two recipients are then submitted, along with their volunteer history, to the Minnesota Board on Aging. Judging of nominations is conducted by a panel of nine representatives from the three sponsoring agencies. Four individuals are selected, two runners-up and two winners. All awards are signed by the governor and presented on Senior Day at the State Fair, which is September 2, 2010.

A copy of the form and instruction sheets can be requested from Jennifer Pickett, 507-272-7129 or from the Fillmore County Fair web site www.fillmorecountyfair.com. Submissions must be post marked no later than June 25th.
