With increasing concerns and impacts of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) across the country, we understand that this may prevent your participation in the success story contest. In light of the current situation, NRPA has decided to postpone the How Do you Promote Healthy Aging in Parks? contest. 

NRPA is committed to providing relevant and timely resources to assist your agency in planning for and responding to this pandemic. See our dedicated COVID-19 resource page or read the blog “COVID-19 and Older Adults: Assisting Our Most Vulnerable Population” for more information.

We encourage you to take the necessary precautions to keep those you may still be serving (as well as yourself and your families) safe and healthy. This page will be updated with information about the next contest when it is available.

If you have any questions, please contact the Healthy Aging in Parks team at Healthyaginginparks@nrpa.org.
