Resident Programs

For a number of years, LeadingAge Oregon has sponsored a variety of programs to engage members' residents in creative activities and foster a closer relationship between the state organization and residents. This relationship works to enhance the lives of residents, and generate positive publicity for members. Programs include:

The Creative Writing Program - February 22, 2017

The annual Creative Writing contest began in 1993. Member residents submit short stories and poems that are read and scored in each category by judges who are published writers and poets. The top 40-50 entries are published annually in a publication entitled “Reflections: A Collection of Writing and Poetry by Oregon’s Elders.” This years  winners will be honored at a Celebration Dessert at Capital Manor in Salem and excerpts of the winning entries will be read by the writer or another chosen reader.

The Ageless Art contest began in 1986 with the first annual calendar published for the year 1987.
