The 2015 COTA SA Positive Ageing Awards continues a 20+ year tradition of recognizing the extraordinary, and mostly unheralded, work done by individuals and organisations in the community. The original Senior's Awards, begun over 30 years ago by COTA SA, were the inspiration behind the current ‘Senior of the Year' awards meted out on Australia Day.

The 2015 Every Generation Festival featured close to 200 events across the state - created, developed and managed by and with older people. Community events continue throughout October, with the full list available at www.cotasa.org.au.
