This spring, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will recognize committed citizens throughout the Bay area who lend their time, energy and leadership to assist those in need as "Community Quarterbacks." Finding the right quarterback to lead your team can be difficult, however, and that's why this team is asking for your help.
Buccaneers fans are encouraged to nominate fellow Bay area citizens for the Community Quarterback Award right here on Buccaneers.com. The deadline for nominating a Community Quarterback has been extended to Monday, March 15 at 11:59 p.m. To jump to the nomination page, please click here.
Anyone can nominate a potential Community Quarterback. Do you have a friend or relative who is a firefighter, policeman or a rescue worker, or a leader in a charitable cause or just an everyday hero such as a teacher or community leader? The Buccaneers want to hear that story. To make a nomination, simply describe in 250 words or less why your nominee is deserving of the Community Quarterback Award. Following a selection process, five individuals will be chosen as the 2010 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Community Quarterbacks.
The award winners will join distinguished Buccaneers representatives for a ceremony and dinner at One Buccaneer Place, the team's state-of-the-art headquarters. All winners will receive a commemorative Community Quarterback football and a $2,000 donation in their name to the local charity of their choice.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Community Quarterback awards are given annually to people who have made exceptional and lasting contributions to the community. Help us celebrate those who display a unique commitment to others and an unbreakable humanitarian spirit. Nominate your Community Quarterback today!
