To many people, retirement is a golden opportunity to make a difference in their own as well as others' lives. To celebrate and recognise these contributions, HK Electric and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) are inviting nominations for the "Outstanding Third Age Citizens Award 2015" from now till 16 January 2015.
Running for the fourth time since 2009, this award is open to people aged 50 or above, who have retired from work or other family responsibilities, and have attained remarkable achievements in three main areas:
Announcing the details of this year's awards, the Managing Director of HK Electric, Mr. Wan Chi-tin, said, "This award scheme pays tribute to retirees who continue enriching themselves and those around them through lifelong learning, leading a healthy lifestyle and serving the community. Anyone fulfilling these criteria deserves our recognition, irrespective of their background or educational level."
"We have selected the theme 'It Might be You' for this year's awards because we believe there are many outstanding third-agers in Hong Kong. We hope to encourage everyone to pay attention to the seniors around us who are making contributions to society and nominate these role models," Mr. Wan explained.
Chief Executive of HKCSS Mr. Chua Hoi-wai was happy to see the wide support generated by the award scheme from the community. "This has helped build up a more positive image for retirees among the general public."
This year's adjudication panel includes the chairman of the Elderly Commission, Professor Alfred Chan Cheung-ming, as well as the president of the City University of Hong Kong, Professor Way Kuo, and Dr. Leong Che-hung. Also helping with the vetting process are Ms. Candy Chea Shuk-mui, one of the Outstanding Young Persons and a media veteran; Ms. Wendy Yu Man-sze, the former ambassador of the Hong Kong Equestrian Federation; Mr. Yuen Sui-see, Director of Operations of HK Electric and Mr. Chua from HKCSS.

The 10 posts with the most likes could be eligible for prizes. The page will also contain information on award details and the concepts of third age and active aging.
The Outstanding Third Age Citizens Award is the only platform in Hong Kong that recognises outstanding retirees. Since its inception, the awards have been presented to 36 remarkable senior citizens who, despite their diverse backgrounds and educational levels, have the same enthusiasm and passion for pursuing their dreams, and share their experience and knowledge with others in the community.
