The Baltimore Ravens and the National Football League have teamed up to honor exceptional Maryland volunteers for their devotion to bettering local communities through the annual Community Quarterback Award.
Supported by NFL Charities and the Ravens All Community Team Foundation, the award recognizes individuals who exemplify dedication, leadership and commitment to improving the communities in which they live through volunteerism. Volunteers 13 and over, who provide extraordinary services for nonprofit organizations, are eligible for the 2012 program. Charitable organizations are invited to nominate their remarkable volunteers for recognition, or individuals may nominate themselves.
The selected volunteers will be acknowledged on Nov. 11 at the Ravens-Raiders game at M&T Bank Stadium. Honorees will be awarded game tickets for themselves and a guest, Ravens apparel and autographed memorabilia, a commemorative plaque and a financial grant benefitting their respective nonprofit organization.
Applications for the 2012 Community Quarterback Award can be completed online at http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/community/programs.html from Oct. 5-26. All nominees will be acknowledged by the Ravens for their commitment to bettering Maryland communities.
The 2011 Community Quarterback Award winners included Angelo Johnson (Art with a Heart, Inc.), Ron Mann (American Red Cross of the Chesapeake Region) and Kate Wolfson (Baltimore SquashWise).
