Nominate an Inspirational Senior Between ages 60 and 69 by August 15

Are you between ages 60 and 69? We want to honor inspirational 60 somethings like you in the 2019 Austin 60 Strong calendar.

Who Can Be Nominated?

Anyone age 18 or older can nominate a Central Texas resident between ages 60 and 69 to be featured in a calendar that highlights area landmarks, entertainment and events, and serves as a roadmap to good health.

Candidates will be judged on their health/fitness/wellness, community involvement, volunteerism and how they are inspirational to others. They may have achieved remarkable levels of fitness, pursued a new hobby or devoted their time to helping those in need. Others might be fighting a chronic condition or caring for someone who is.

Winners and a Celebrity Panel

The winners will be featured on the 2019 Austin 60 Strong calendar in front of or inside Austin area landmarks. Some of those include: the Texas State Capitol, the Blanton Museum of Art, Broken Spoke, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, The Moody Theater, Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Austin Central Library.

A panel of celebrity judges will select 12 winners who exemplify how life after sixty can be a positive, vibrant and active time. In addition to appearing in the Austin 60 Strong calendar, winners will receive "celebrity treatment" with a kick-off party, professional photo shoot and compensation for their time as a "model."
