The Green Bay Packers currently are accepting nominations for the Community Quarterback Award.

Funded by the Green Bay Packers and NFL Charities, the Community Quarterback Award recognizes outstanding volunteers within the state of Wisconsin. Non-profit (501(c)(3) or 509) organizations are invited to nominate outstanding volunteers who demonstrate leadership, dedication and a commitment to bettering their communities through volunteerism.

In addition, a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) is required to begin the nomination form, and to eliminate nomination forms from organizations other than those deemed (501(c)(3) or 509).

The Community Quarterback Award is for volunteers who are not compensated for their services. There is no age limit for volunteers; however, they must be currently volunteering on a regular basis (weekly or monthly). Twenty nominees will be selected and each will receive a $1,000 grant in the name of the non-profit organization from the Green Bay Packers.

The deadline for nomination submission is Dec. 10, 2010. The nomination process is available online: click here.
