Outstanding Older American nominees are being sought

The Maui County Office on Aging is seeking nominations for Maui County’s 50th annual Outstanding Older American Male and Female of Maui County. The awards program is held each May in conjunction with Older Americans Month to recognize elders across the nation for their extraordinary efforts and contributions to society.

Nominees for the awards must be 65 years of age or older and a resident of Maui County. Any individual, club or organization may nominate candidates for the award. Previous winners are not eligible for nomination.

Nomination forms are available by calling 270-7755, online at www.mauicountyadrc. org, or by emailing mcoa.adrc@mauicounty. gov. The deadline to return completed nomination forms is 4:30 p.m. April 4 to the J. Walter Cameron Center, Attn: OOA Committee, 95 Mahalani St., Room 20, Wailuku 96793.
