Packers, Edvest seek Rookie Reporters
GREEN BAY - Six students will get a chance to be Green Bay Packers "Rookie Reporters" and also receive $1,000 Edvest college savings gift cards and tickets for a game at Lambeau Field.
The Packers and Edvest, Wisconsin's 529 College Savings Plan, are accepting entries for the second Rookie Reporter contest. One male and one female winner will be drawn from age brackets 6-9, 10-12 and 13-15. Winners will be randomly chosen.
Each winner will act as a reporter and interview a Green Bay Packers player or coach. They will also receive a behind-the-scenes tour and interact with Packers staff. Each interview will be videotaped and a teaser clip shown on the Green Bay Packers TundraVision videoboards at a 2016 home game. Each winner will receive four tickets to the corresponding game in which their interview clips will be shown.
Last year, more than 8,000 Wisconsin youth entered the contest. To be eligible, the students and their parents, grandparents or legal guardians must live in Wisconsin.
