Ohio residents are encouraged to cast their vote for the state's Outstanding Senior Volunteer.
The recognition is part of the Salute to Senior Service program, sponsored by Home Instead, Inc., of the Home Instead Senior Care network. The program honors the contributions of adults 65 and older who give at least 15 hours a month of volunteer service to their favorite causes.
The nominations were accepted up to March 31.
Online voting takes place now through April 30. Visit www.salutetoseniorservice.com to view the nominations and vote for a favorite.
From those state winners, a panel of senior care experts will pick the national Salute to Senior Service honoree.
Home Instead will donate $500 to each of the state winners' favorite nonprofit organizations and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner's nonprofit charity of choice.
The 2012 state winner was Philip Gregg, 74, of Newark, Ohio.  Gregg was honored for his work at the Licking County Veterans Alliance.
The 2012 national winner is Clark Paradise, an 85-year-old volunteer from Toms River, N.J., who - with his wife, Jean - founded a growing mission in his community that serves more than 1,000 homeless and disadvantaged each month.
