Troy Tyloch was last year's winner.
Two Green Bay Packers community grants, the Community Quarterback Award and the Junior Volunteer Stars, are still accepting applications, it was announced Saturday.
Funded by NFL Charities, the Green Bay Packers Community Quarterback Award recognizes community and youth volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities through volunteering for a non-profit organization of their choice.
The nomination process is fulfilled by charitable organizations that nominate their distinguished volunteers, and a selection committee then selects finalists and winners. Award winners receive a $10,000 grant from NFL Charities and five finalists each receive $2,000 grants.
Troy Tyloch, a volunteer with the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin, was the 2002 Community Quarterback Award winner.
The Green Bay Packers Junior Volunteer Stars, a new program for 2003, is designed to promote community investment and volunteerism in children via small-level donations.
These donations must be used to finance a community improvement project, such as playground clean-up, repainting of graffiti-marked walls, planting a garden at a senior center and food and clothing distribution.
Children, 18 years and younger, who attend a school in Brown County are eligible to apply as an individual or a group.
The community improvement project requires a sponsoring organization in a form of a school, church or community group or other 501c(3). Ten grants, totaling $500 each, will be awarded to organizations sponsoring the individual or group.
The deadline for both applications is Oct. 15. Nomination forms for both grants are available by contacting Cathy Dworak, the Packers' manager of community relations, by phone (920/490-5925) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
