Nominate an 'older' worker for award
Experience Works is looking for mature persons in the workforce to honor, to raise awareness of the contributions made by older individuals and to break down barriers associated with hiring older workers. Last year, 104-year-old Waldo McBurney, a beekeeper and author from Quinter, Kan., was named America's Oldest Worker.
Nominees must be 65 and currently working at least 20 hours each week for pay. The honoree must be willing and able to travel to Washington, D.C., in October for the prime Time Award events. The winner from California last year was Ruth Gottstein, 83, a resident of Volcano, Calif., who is the owner of Volcano Press.
Find an online entry form at www.experienceworks.org. Deadline for nominations is May 1.
