Packers Name Community Quarterback And Jr. Community Quarterback Award Recipients

Posted Jan 9, 2008

The Green Bay Packers Wednesday named 10 Community Quarterback Award winners and five Jr. Community Quarterback Award winners and honored the recipients at a dinner in the Legends Club inside the Lambeau Field Atrium.

The recipients were recognized for their work in the community. Each Community Quarterback Award winner received a $2,000 grant for his/her non-profit group and each Jr. Community Quarterback Award winner received a $1,000 grant for his/her non-profit group.

Funded by NFL Charities, the Green Bay Packers Community Quarterback (21 and older) and Jr. Community Quarterback Awards (under 21) recognize community volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities. The nomination process is fulfilled by charitable organizations that nominate their distinguished volunteers. A selection committee then is appointed by each NFL team to select its winners.
