The Illinois Department on Aging (IDoA) is accepting nominations for the 2018 Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame Awards. These awards recognize adults, 65 years of age and older, and highlight the meaningful contributions they have made in Illinois.

It is a true honor to recognize older adults across the state that have made a significant impact on their community,” said Jean Bohnhoff, director of IDoA. “I encourage everyone to nominate someone who should be recognized for their notable service. Please help us honor those who help the principles of respecting yesterday, supporting today, and hoping for tomorrow.”
