JR. COMMUNITY QUARTERBACK AND JUNIOR VOLUNTEER STARS SEEK RECIPIENTS
Application deadlines for both programs, open to residents of Wisconsin, have been extended to Feb. 10.
The Green Bay Packers Jr. Community Quarterback Award, a grant ranging from $1,000 to $5,000, is designed to honor high school and college students (ages 13 to 21) who exemplify leadership, dedication, creativity and a commitment to improving the communities in which they live through volunteerism. Applications may be submitted by an eligible individual or a group of eligible young people who create a new community betterment project or are working to sustain a project they have already initiated. Others may nominate such an individual or group as well.
Green Bay Packers Junior Volunteer Stars is a program designed to promote community investment and volunteerism in children (ages 13 and younger) via small-level grants. These small-level grants must be used to finance a community improvement project, such as playground clean-up, repainting of graffiti walls, planting a garden at a senior center or food and clothing collection. The project must be created and executed by the child or children.
Nomination forms for both grants are available online at www.packers.com or by contacting Bobbi Jo Eisenreich of the Green Bay Packers' community relations department by phone (920/569-7500) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Grant winners for both programs will be selected by Feb. 17, 2006, and notified via mail.
