Nominations Now Available for Golden Hoosier Awards


The State of Indiana is looking to honor senior citizens who are giving back to their communities. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2016 Golden Hoosier Awards.

The award is given out each year by the Lieutenant Governor’s Office and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration’s Division of Aging to recognize senior citizens who have dedicated their lives to helping their communities. The State of Indiana considers the award one of its highest honors given to senior citizens.
