AARP Purpose Prize: Nominations close March 6, 2018

posted Wed, Jan 3, 2018   by AARP

The AARP Purpose Prize is the only national award in the United States that celebrates people 50 and older who are using their life experience to make a difference. Through the Purpose Prize, AARP celebrates the creativity, innovation and inspiration that life experience brings. Each year, five winners receive $50,000 each to celebrate their achievements and broaden the scope of their work. Included within the AARP Purpose Prize is the Andrus Prize for Intergenerational Excellence, celebrating the legacy of AARP’s founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, who was an innovative educator and social change agent. It recognizes work that brings multiple generations together for a better community.
