The Organization has created the Ethel Percy Andrus Legacy Awards to honor AARP’s founder, a pioneer in public school education. The $100,000 award will be given to one public high school (grades 8-12) in cities that have been selected as focal points for AARP’s 50th Anniversary celebration. These cities are Chicago, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, Miami, and Washington, D.C. The prize will be awarded to a school in each of these cities as a way of recognizing a public high school program that has either fostered greater intergenerational understanding or enhanced civic engagement between the school and its local community. Public secondary school principals in the celebration cities are invited to submit descriptions of their programs that meet the Legacy Awards criteria. Only typed applications will be accepted. Program content must be kept to five pages or less. Additional information and applications can be found on the Web site.
