Still time for Outstanding Older Worker nominations
Nominations will be accepted for Minnesota's outstanding older worker for 2008 until April 30. An online nomination form or a printed nomination form can be accessed at www.experienceworks.org.
The Experience Works Prime Time Awards program is part of Experience Work's national effort to raise awareness of the contributions made by older individuals and to break down barriers associated with the hiring of all older workers. This year's search is being sponsored by Home Instead Senior Care, an outstanding employer of older workers in 2006.
Outstanding older workers from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico will be honored in Washington, D.C., and in their home states for their contributions to the workforce and local communities.
Nominees or applicants must be 65 years of age or older, a resident of Minnesota, currently employed, and working at least 20 hours each week for pay. The honoree must be willing and able to travel to Washington, D.C., the week of September 22-26 for the Prime Time Award events.
