24th Annual AGE Awards

Community. Relationships. Service. Giving. Aging Boldly.

These values are at the heart of what we do at AGE of Central Texas, and they are the heart of what we celebrate every year at the AGE Awards. 

Serving the older adults and family caregivers of this community is not something we do alone -- and we revel in the chance to honor individuals and local organizations doing spectacular work for the aging community each year.

The annual AGE Awards event, hosted by AGE of Central Texas, recognizes outstanding achievements by individuals and organizations whose leadership, achievements, and contributions have had a significant impact on the quality of life for aging adults and their caregivers in Central Texas.

We will celebrate the selected honorees at a special Awards event on Friday, April 20th, at The Thinkery in Austin's Mueller Town Center. More information coming soon!
