The Ohio Department of Aging is accepting nominations for individuals to be inducted into the 2016 Ohio Senior Citizens Hall of Fame.

Nominees must be 60 or older and be native-born Ohioans or residents of the state for at least 10 years. Posthumous nominations will be accepted.

Nominees will be evaluated on the impact of their contributions and accomplishments.

Nominations are accepted year-round, but should be submitted by Feb. 15 to be considered for the current induction year.

The induction ceremony will be held in May. Those selected will join more than 400 older Ohioans inducted into the hall since its inception in 1978.
