Faraci HoFCHAMPAIGN – To commemorate the achievements and contributions of older adults, State Senator Paul Faraci is asking residents to submit their nominations for the 2023 Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame.

“We all have an older family member, friend or neighbor in mind that has made a positive impact in our community,” said Faraci (D-Champaign). “Their selfless acts deserve recognition, and that’s why I’m encouraging you to submit a nomination to the Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame.”

The Senior Illinoisans Hall of Fame celebrates outstanding accomplishments in community service, education, the labor force and the arts. Each year, four candidates — one from each category — are inducted.

Eligibility is based on an individual’s past and present accomplishments, and the candidate must be a current Illinois citizen or a former citizen for most of their life. Posthumous nominees are also considered.

Nominations for 2023 inductees must be submitted by June 1. For more information or to submit a nomination, click here.
