Nominations for outstanding senior volunteers will be accepted until March 31.
State winners then will be selected by popular vote at SalutetoSeniorService.com.
Online voting will take place from April 15 to April 30.
From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
Home Instead will donate $500 to each of the state winners' favorite nonprofit organizations, and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame.
In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner's nonprofit charity of choice.
“We all know seniors who do so much for our community,” said Sandy Boughner, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office at 675 N. 5th Ave. in Sequim, which provides services throughout the North Olympic Peninsula.
“These silent heroes give selflessly, expecting nothing in return. And yet their contributions often make a difference not only to the organizations they serve, but in changing how the public views growing older.”
To complete and submit a nomination form online, visit SalutetoSeniorService.com.
Completed nomination forms also can be mailed to Salute to Senior Service, P.O. Box 285, Bellevue, NE 68005.
