If you are a Winnipegger under the age of 18, and know an older adult (60 years or older) who has made a difference in your life, or in the lives of others, you are encouraged to nominate them for “Mayor’s Senior of the Year Awards.”

“The Senior of the Year awards allows us to celebrate the achievements and accomplishments for our City’s builders. By asking the youth of our City to get involved and nominate a senior, we provide a tremendous opportunity for our young people to recognize and learn from the wealth of knowledge our seniors possess.” – Mayor Sam Katz

I can’t help but be reminded of Disney’s Up after reading about this award. Seniors may come across boring at times – but they usually all have an amazing story to tell.

Nomination forms are available online at www.winnipeg.ca/interhom/mayor/. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, June 1st, 2011.
