Grandmother's photo chosen as winner of Packers Ticket Takeover Contest
GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- After thousands of entries and more than 40,000 votes, a grandmother in Green Bay is the winner of the Packers Ticket Takeover Contest.
The Green Bay Packers say Trisha Brown's photo of her granddaughter, Rylen, will be printed on more than 80,000 game tickets for a 2019 regular season Packers game.
The contest ran from March 6 through April 24 and invited fans to submit a photo for a chance to have it printed on game tickets.
A panel of Packers officials chose the top five photos, and those five were posted on packerseverywhere.com to be voted on by fans. Brown’s photo had the most votes in the contest and was named the grand prize winner.
Brown, a lifelong Packers fan, was raised in Antigo, Wis., and has spent the last 35 years living in Green Bay. She took Rylen’s photo in front of the Lambeau Field Atrium during Packers Training Camp in July of 2018. Rylen, who was one year old when the photo was taken, lives in Green Bay with her parents, Courtney and Zach, both natives of Green Bay.
In addition to having her photo printed for a to-be-determined 2019 regular season game, Brown and her family will receive tickets to the game.
Voters in the contest this year were entered to win two tickets to a 2019 Packers game each time they voted. The winner of the tickets is Turtle Polk from Waukesha, Wis.
