Honoring those who prove


The 70 over 70 awards represent the human potential that continues and in some cases increases with age. Awardees reflect the diverse interests, accomplishments and lifestyles of older people in Metro Detroit.

Nominations and Awards Information

Nominations are now closed for the 2018 70 Over 70 Awards.

What is the age requirement for the 70 Over 70 Awards?

All nominees must be 70 years of age or older at the time of nomination to be eligible for consideration.

How are the 70 Over 70 awardees selected?

All nominations are reviewed by a judging panel comprised of Hannan Foundation staff and trustees. The panel will review the nominations carefully and debate the merits of the candidates, weighing their achievements until the 70 Over 70 class of 2018 is determined.

Recognition at Event
