Who is the oldest person you know in South Dakota? Each year, the South Dakota Health Care Association’s (SDHCA) Century Clubsm seeks to find the answer! If you know of a South Dakotan born before February 20, 1911, he or she may be our state’s oldest living person, and SDHCA would like to honor him or her with the 2019 Centenarian of the Year award.
If you are aware of a South Dakota resident at least age 108, who may be a candidate for our Centenarian of the Year award, please contact SDHCA using the information below.
In addition, any South Dakotan aged 100 or older is eligible to be recognized as part of SDHCA’s Century Club. The Century Club is free to enroll, and each inductee receives a specially designed, framed certificate and membership card. The Century Club has inducted over 1,300 applicants since its founding in 1997. The Centenarian of the Year award is presented each July to the eldest living Century Club member.
