Elder Abuse Creative Arts Contest

Elder Abuse Information advertisement

In an effort to create awareness on the tragedy of elder abuse, the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and its Task Force Against Senior Abuse, DES’s Division of Aging and Adult Services, and the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging have united to sponsor the 2019 “Why Should I Care About Elder Abuse?” Arizona Student Creative Arts Competition.

This competition is being held to help bring attention to World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, commemorated annually on June 15. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an opportunity for people or organizations to take action to protect older people by raising awareness about elder abuse, why it occurs, and what we can do to stop it.
