acknowledged at Soldier Field
Both the Bears and Packers go to great lengths identify, train and salute young leaders discovered within their summer youth football camps.
With 27 camp locations, the Chicago Bears identified 54 leaders from over 1600 participants.
With 10 camp locations, the Green Bay Packers identified 20 leaders from over 700 participants.
Both teams apply the following criteria when choosing a Leadership Award Winners.
2. Leaders initiate. They see what needs to be done and get it done without having to be asked.
3. Leaders are hungry for knowledge and listen to the coaches. No, they are not asking questions every 30 seconds. Instead, they absorb the message and act on it.
4. Leaders take learn from and take ownership in their mistakes.
5. Leaders don’t finger point, blame or make fun of others. Instead, they are protective of others, show belief in others and encourage them to keep trying.
In many ways, these Leadership Award Winners are the antidote to bullies.
