Senior moments: Share your photos from the smartphone to the spotlight

Local 10 News is celebrating the senior citizens across our South Florida community. Head to to see how you can honor a senior who is special to you.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, our seniors had to isolate from family, friends, and the activities they enjoyed most to protect themselves. Once vaccines became available, they were finally able to socialize again and visit with their loved ones. It’s why Local 10 launched “Senior Moments.” It’s a campaign tailored to celebrate those special moments in a senior’s life.

Through September, Local 10 viewers are invited to take a picture of their favorite senior, age 65 and wiser, celebrating a milestone birthday, family reunion, or another special occasion. That photo can be uploaded at the bottom of this page, along with a description in 50 words or less of the moment captured. In September, we will feature the “Senior Moment of the Day” on our social media pages, and you can see the photos in a gallery on

There is a treasure trove of senior moments around us and Local 10 wants to share them with viewers. Send us those moments and we will take them from your smartphone to the spotlight.
