Turning 100? That is something worth celebrating!

The Iowa Department on Aging is celebrating centenarians who are 100 years old or older. These individuals have lived through life experiences that most of us have only read about in books or seen in movies; their strength, endurance and collective wisdom inspires us all and they deserve to be recognized in a safe way.

In an effort to recognize all Iowans who are celebrating 100 years or more of life, the Iowa Department on Aging and the state's Area Agencies on Aging invite you to help identify the centenarians in our state.

For the purposes of this program, a centenarian is any adult who will be 100 years of age or older, and whose primary residence is Iowa. Each centenarian turning 100 years old will receive a certificate signed by Governor Reynolds that is suitable for framing. In addition, the Iowa Department on Aging will give all Iowans 100 and older the option to have a profile on our website that will consist of their first name, picture, and fun information that is shared via the form. The Department will also be hosting a virtual event at the end of the year where all Iowans 100+ will be recognized and celebrated. More information will come as the time nears.

To have a centenarian recognized please complete this form.
