In March 2012, the National Center for Creative Aging (NCCA) announced the winners of the MetLife Foundation Creativity and Aging in America Leadership Award, recognizing Lifetime Arts in the category Lifelong Learning.
This Award honors exceptional programs in health and wellness, lifelong learning, and community engagement. The other winners were: Alzheimer’s Poetry Project, community engagement category and Songwriting Works, for the health and wellness category. All three provide exemplary programs in creativity and aging- locally, nationally and in urban, suburban, and rural communities.
