Nominations are being accepted in the search for America’s Outstanding Oldest Worker.
It is sponsored by Experience Works, the nation’s largest nonprofit training and employment organization for older workers.
America’s  Outstanding Oldest Worker nominees must be 100 or older, working at least 20 hours each week for pay and involved in his or her community. The honoree for 2010 will be introduced in May, as part of Older American’s Month.
More information, including the nomination form, is available at The deadline for nominations is March 15.
“Experience Works is proud to sponsor the search for America’s Oldest Worker, because we know that older individuals have a lot to offer — experience, knowledge, dependability and enthusiasm,” said Lita Kleger, vice president of external affairs for Experience Works.
Last year’s honoree was attorney Jack Borden, 101, from Weatherford, Texas. A former FBI agent, he is the oldest practicing member of the Texas State Bar Association. He still works 40 hours a week, specializing in real estate and probate law.
In Georgia, Experience Works administers a job program that is free to participants who are 55 and older and meet income criteria. For more information visit or call (866) 397-9757.
