After more than 9,000 photos were submitted to the "Packers Ticket Takeover Contest," five finalists have been selected for the chance to have their photo printed on approximately 80,000 game tickets. Fan voting will take place today through May 1 to select the winner.
Fans interested in voting should visit http://pckrs.com/vote and select their favorite image. The Packers Everywhere website's contest page also gives voters the opportunity to view how the photo will look on a ticket template for the game. The photo with the most fan votes will be named the grand prize winner, and the photo will be printed on the Packers' 2015 Fan Appreciation Game tickets.
This year's finalists are Ella Holmanof Clarinda, Iowa; Sue Brown of Scottville, Mich.; Scott Olson of Menasha, Wis.; Barb Steinfeldt of Appleton, Wis.; and Laura Fischer of Neenah, Wis.
In addition to having their photo printed on the tickets for a 2015 Packers game, the grand prize winner will receive two tickets to that game, including airfare and hotel accommodations for two nights. The contest, brought to you by American Family Insurance, is now in its third year.

The photo was featured on the Dec. 28, 2014, ticket for the Green Bay Packers vs. Detroit Lions Fan Appreciation Game, a contest Stevens and his son attended together.
