Wisconsin Professional Sports Come Together for Scholarship
FOX Sports Wisconsin in conjunction with the Green Bay Packers, Milwaukee Admirals, Brewers and Bucks are proud to announce the inaugural Home Team Scholarship. The annual $25,000 scholarship was awarded to the Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year finalists from Wisconsin’s Boys & Girls Clubs “Youth of the Year” state competition yesterday afternoon in Madison, Wisconsin.
This is the first time Wisconsin’s professional sports community has come together to award a scholarship to local youth.
Developed to positively affect the lives of Wisconsin’s youth through financial support, the $25,000 Home Team Scholarship is distributed based on financial aid need and is designed to provide Wisconsin’s Youth of the Year finalists with funding to further supplement other scholarships and grants. Each of the Youth of the Year finalists will receive a portion of the scholarship funds.
Since 1947, Youth of the Year has been Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s premier recognition program, celebrating the extraordinary achievements of Club teens. Club members who earn the Youth of the Year title embody the values of leadership, service, academic excellence and healthy lifestyles. They exemplify the critical impact that Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people.
The Home Team Scholarship was formally announced at the Milwaukee Bucks game on February 29, with representatives from all sports teams in attendance.
