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 2021 Golden Hoosier Award.

“Every year, it amazes me how many thoughtful and selfless Hoosiers we have in our state,” Crouch said. 

"Despite all the challenges we faced as a state over the past year, we still had numerous Hoosiers who were going above and beyond to better their communities," she said. "The best thing about Indiana are her people, men and women who often look to their neighbor and see how they can help them, especially during times of need, and I am proud to honor the Golden Hoosiers every 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 19. Electronic nomination forms can be found at

A ceremony honoring those selected will be held virtually later this year.
