The Glacier Hills Legacy Fund (GHLF) at the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF) is pleased to announce that the public can now vote for People’s Choice Awards of Vital Seniors: A Community Innovation Competition—a $2.5 million initiative to catalyze high-impact innovation and create enduring outcomes for vulnerable seniors and their caregivers in Washtenaw County.
Voting at vitalseniorscomp.com/vote launched October 1 and remains open until 11:59pm on October 21, 2018. The People’s Choice platform hosts short, 30 second videos from each of the 10 finalists to showcase their innovations.
“The People’s Choice voting raises up the innovative ideas generated and gives the public an opportunity to view the finalists and vote for the project that excites them with a vision for older adults and their caregivers in our community”, says Neel Hajra, CEO of AAACF.
The public will help select two awards of $50,000 each (for a program with both greater and less than $1M in annual revenue), to be announced in November. All 10 projects are already winners, having received $20,000 each for being selected as finalists:
