The 2090-10 school year is coming to an end for students throughout the Bay area, but some motivated teens are already looking for a way to make next year a more rewarding experience.
Since mid-April, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been accepting applications for their 2010-11 Student Advisory Board. SAB, as it is affectionately referred to by its members, has been aiding the Bay area community and spreading Buccaneer spirit for 11 noteworthy years, and already a strong group of candidates has emerged for next school year's edition. Those applicants know that SAB will give them the opportunity to not only perform valuable community service but also attend Buccaneer home games and gather career advice in a variety of fields from team representatives.
The good news for those who have not yet applied: There's still time, but you must act fast.
The Buccaneers are still looking for dedicated young men and women who are are entering their sophomore, junior or senior years at schools in West Central Florida counties to help form next year's SAB. The team will continue to accept applications through this Saturday, June 12.

First formed during the NFL's offseason in 1999, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Student Advisory Board has become an integral part of the team's outreach efforts. The Buccaneers created this council in an effort to bring together intelligent, energetic and motivated students to perform community service projects, create Buccaneer spirit in their schools and develop leadership skills in preparation for continuing education.
All SAB members also attend Buccaneer home games either as team representatives or enthusiastic fans. At each game, half of the council members work as customer service representatives in the East and West Club Lounges of Raymond James Stadium, while the rest of the members enjoy the opportunity to relax and be fans for the day.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are currently looking for members for their 2010-2011 Student Advisory Board. During their one-year terms, Board members have the opportunity to tour Raymond James Stadium, learn from important guest speakers at monthly meetings and participate in Buccaneers community service events.
For more information on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Student Advisory Board, please call 813-870-2700 ext. 2274. However, applications may only be submitted online.
After the deadline for applications has passed, all qualified candidates will then be interviewed at One Buccaneer Place in Tampa from June 21-24. Interviews will last approximately 15 minutes and are set up on a first-come, first-served basis. As part of the online application, applicants will be asked to submit an essay of 1,500 words or less that describes the positive qualities he or she possesses and the experiences he or she has had that would enhance the Student Advisory Board.
