Turning 100? That is something worth celebrating!

The Iowa Division on Aging and Disability Services (ADS) 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, ADS 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.

To have a centenarian recognized please complete this centenarian registration form.
