Inspire Positive Aging Awards Luncheon

Inspire Positive Aging Awards Logo

Is there an older adult that inspires you?

Every year, Sound Generations hosts our annual Inspire Positive Aging Awards (IPAA) Luncheon. The IPAA Luncheon celebrates and honors older adults across King County that exemplify positive aging.

Due to concerns surrounding COVID-19 and large event gatherings (especially for older individuals, which this event celebrates), we have made the decision for this year’s IPAA to go virtual.

Join Our Virtual Table

Help us celebrate the achievements of older adults in our community by joining our community table!

Want to nominate an outstanding individual for the IPAA?

We are currently accepting nominations from January 28, 2020 – May 8, 2020. Learn more about the IPAA official rules here.

Every year, we recognize recipients in the following categories:

  • Advocacy & Activism
  • Community Service
  • Health & Wellness
  • Intergenerational Impact
  • Lifelong Learning
  • Defining Inspiration

Nominees are comprised of individuals whose lives exemplify positive aging: community involvement, relationships, healthy living, endurance, creativity, and balance—all traits we ourselves hope to exhibit as we age.
