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.

The winners of the 2007 awards and their affiliations are as follows:
