Clark County recognizes that older adults are valuable contributors to the vitality of this community. To encourage and support them for their contributions to their communities, the Clark County Commission on Aging has established a program to recognize adults 65 and older by means of an annual award typically presented at a Commission on Aging event.
The Silver Citizen Award recognizes the valuable contributions these individuals make to the vitality of the community and is open to any county resident 65 years or older who has enhanced the community through their life’s work, engagement of others, volunteerism, and or other impactful acts of service to the community for any age group.
Service in any field of endeavor will be considered (e.g., education, radio, television, business, healthcare, art, music, journalism, faith-based, athletics, politics, volunteer service). A couple may receive the award jointly when both have been involved in service and various community endeavors.
All nominations for the Silver Citizen Award must be received no later than 5:00 pm, Thursday, August 26, 2021. Award criteria and nomination forms can be found on the Commission on Aging’s webpage .
The Commission on Aging, supported by the Clark County Council, is a nine-member volunteer group that implements the Aging Readiness Plan and provides leadership addressing the needs of aging community members.
