Google and Age Action have teamed up to search for Ireland’s top Silver Surfers and highlight the difference technology can make in older people’s lives. The idea of the annual awards, now in their fourth year, is to celebrate the over 50s in Ireland who have embraced the online world.
Google and Age Action are calling on people across Ireland to nominate a friend, neighbour or relative who has made modern technology a part of their daily life, people who are enthusiastic about technology and would be good ambassadors and role models for older people.
Last year’s overall winner was 76 year old Dorothy Harrington from Co. Dublin. Dorothy received the award for, amongst other things, selling her house online.
Nominations can be submitted in five categories:
The closing date for nominations is 14 September and the overall winners will be announced on 2 October at Google's Dublin headquarters.
