Golden Hoosier Award nominations now being accepted

Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch in collaboration with the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration’s Division of Aging recently announced nominations are being accepted for the 2020 Golden Hoosier Award.

“Every year, it amazes me how many thoughtful and selfless Hoosiers we have in our state,” Crouch said. “The best thing about Indiana are her people, men and women who often look to their neighbors and find ways to offer a helping hand. I look forward to honoring these Golden Hoosiers for their service to their communities later this year."

Crouch said the award, which was established in 2008, annually honors older Hoosiers for their lifetime of service and commitment to their communities.

To be eligible for the award, the nominee must currently be an Indiana resident age 65 or older and have been a volunteer in the community for the past three years.

The deadline for submitting applications is June 30. Electronic nomination forms can be found at

Details about the ceremony honoring those selected will be forthcoming.
