2015 Arizona Age-Friendly Community Competition
About the Network and Competition:
The Arizona Age-Friendly Network promotes meaningful connections among all generations. These connections support each person sharing their skills and time with their community. Since 2011, the network has worked with communities to enhance and create opportunities to bring together people of all ages. The age-friendly community competition began in 2014 as a way to celebrate the great work already underway. This year, the competition will offer one $5,000 grant and one $2,500 grant to support the awardees in becoming even more age-friendly. The awards will be presented at the Going Places conference on May 6, 2015 at the Ina Levine Jewish Community Campus, 12701 N. Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A press conference will be held for the winners of the competition as well.
