The search is on for Iowa’s most outstanding older worker. Nominations are being accepted through Alice Iverson, spokeswoman for the group “Experience Works.” Iverson says the criteria include: being at least 65, a resident of Iowa, and working at least 20 hours a week for pay. She says they can be in any career — lawyers, nurses, teachers — someone who’s passionate and who’s made a difference in that profession. Iverson says the winner will be honored with a dinner this summer and will represent Iowa at a national event in Washington, D.C. in September. They’re trying to promote, honor, respect and admire people who go to work every day and have been excited and contributed to their communities and to the country, and are still a valuable part of the workforce. Iverson says it’s amazing how some older people just never give up. She says some honorees in recent years have been over one-hundred years old and they’re still working, energetic and very able. To nominate someone, call 800-782-7519 or surf to “www.experienceworks.org”.
