The Inspire Positive Aging Award (IPAA)
King County is filled with older adults, whose lives inspire us about how to age with grace, enthusiasm, creativity, hope, and energy. They quietly make life better for others even as their years advance. Senior Services created the Inspire Positive Aging Award in 2006 to recognize such inspiring elders. Today, IPAA is the most prestigious award in King County celebrating positive aging.
The 2013 IPAA will be presented at Senior Services’ Annual Breakfast
on Wednesday, May 8 at the Museum of Flight, Seattle.
You can nominate your mentor, parent, grandparent, friend, neighbor, or simply someone you know, whose life exemplifies positive aging through community involvement, relationships, healthy living, endurance, and balance. Nominees need to be 65 years of age or older and King County residents.
Anyone can nominate a senior. We encourage children, students, professionals, and anyone in the community, who has been inspired by a local elder, to submit a nomination.
The winner will receive two domestic, round-trip plane tickets to a destination of his/her choice, generously provided by IPAA sponsor Regence, as well as a one-year membership to a local senior center. The nominator will receive a $50 gift certificate from Barnes & Noble. In addition, IPAA nominees may be featured on Senior Services’ website, in our newsletters, and in the press.
For IPAA information and application, please contact Brittany Blue at (206) 727-6261 or firstname.lastname@example.org
