Through the annual Community Quarterback Award, the Baltimore Ravens have teamed up with the National Football League to honor exceptional Maryland volunteers who devote their time to bettering area communities.
Supported by the NFL Foundation and the Ravens Foundation Inc., the award recognizes individuals who exemplify leadership, dedication and commitment to improving the communities in which they live. Volunteers ages 13 and up, who provide extraordinary service to area nonprofit organizations, are eligible for the 2016 Community Quarterback Award. Charitable organizations are encouraged to nominate their remarkable volunteers, or individuals may nominate themselves.
The award recipients selected will be acknowledged on Nov. 27 at the Ravens-Bengals game at M&T Bank Stadium. Honorees will be given game tickets for themselves and a guest, Ravens apparel, a commemorative plaque and a financial grant benefiting their respective nonprofit organization.
Applications for the 2016 Community Quarterback Award are open and can be completed online at www.baltimoreravens.com/communityQB until Nov. 4. All nominees will be celebrated by the Ravens for their commitment to bettering Maryland communities.
The 2015 Community Quarterback Award winners were:
- Gertrude Hopkins (Harford Family House)
- Tyler Mains (MERIT Baltimore)
- Cameron Miles (Mentoring Male Teens in the Hood)
