County Seeks Senior Citizen Of The Year Nominations

Nassau County is seeking nominations for Nassau County’s 2017 Senior Citizen of the Year. This annual award recognizes two individuals who have demonstrated outstanding concern and action for human services and community involvement relating to any age group.  Nominations are being accepted through Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017. 

“There are so many seniors who have dedicated themselves to enriching the lives of others,” said County Executive Ed Mangano.  “While this award pays tribute to two residents, I commend all of our senior citizens for the vital role they play in our communities.”

To be eligible for the award, a candidate:

  • Must be 60 years of age or older and presently living in Nassau County;
  • May not be an employee of any organization, unless in an unpaid, volunteer position; and
  • Must be submitted on an official application form.

Those who have already received the award are ineligible, while those who were nominated but did not receive previous awards may be re-nominated.  All nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges from the Advisory Council to the Office for the Aging.  This award will honor two of the many dedicated individuals who have made outstanding personal contributions for the enrichment of the lives of others.

Nominations for Senior Citizen of the Year may be made by individuals or groups.  All nominations must be submitted on an application form and received by Tuesday, Feb. 14.
