JEFFERSON CITY — A state agency is seeking nominations for Missouri's Older Worker of the Year contest.

The title is bestowed by the state Department of Health and Senior Services. The agency says older employees are a critical part of the workforce and more important than ever as the population ages.

The contest is open to Missouri residents who are at least 65 years old, work a minimum of 20 hours per week and demonstrate dependability and skill. Nominations are due by Aug. 17.

A two-day award ceremony will be held in October in Jefferson City for the winner and regional finalists.
