“My Recipe for Strength” Contest
The national contest to “share what you are doing to age strong” is no longer taking entries but later in May people can vote online for their favorites. The voting period will run from May 22 through May 28, 2010.
Winning entries will be selected in three categories: video, photography, and poetry/prose. Winners will receive a certificate of recognition and their entry will be publicly announced and prominently displayed on the Administration on Aging's website. ”Entries should creatively promote the Older Americans Month 2010 theme ‘Age Strong! Live Long!’ and may be submitted as a video, photograph, poem, or essay. Whether it's an exercise routine, a healthy diet, a tradition with friends, or remembering to look on the bright side of life, we want to find out what you've done to age strong and live long!,” according to the AOA statement on their website.
