The WA Seniors Awards finalists have been announced.
From a university researcher to a surf lifesaving club ambassador, the 2015 finalists represent a diverse mix of industries and interest areas.
The WA Seniors Awards acknowledge the important contribution of seniors to the community, as well as those who work to improve the lives of older West Australians. Journalism that positively promotes seniors is also acknowledged in the Deborah Kirwan Media Award category.
The winners of each category and an overall winner will be announced at the WA Seniors Awards ceremony at Crown Perth on 1 October 2015 – the United Nations' International Day of Older Persons.
The WA Seniors Awards are presented by Council on the Ageing WA in partnership with the Department of Local Government and Communities. The sponsors are Juniper, Lotterywest, Have a Go News, 6PR and Crown Perth.
