2012 Super Bowl Programs Unveiled


The committee responsible for organizing the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis is using the massive event to promote volunteerism within the community.
The group has created two programs: 1st and Green and Super Scarves, each crafted to engage community-minded people who are not necessarily sports fans. Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard says the committee hopes to ignite a passion for civic engagement.
1st and Green is a web-based program that people can use to track their carbon footprint.
The Super Scarves program is designed to reward the estimated 8,000 Indianapolis Super Bowl volunteers by giving them each a blue and white scarve emblazoned with a special host committee patch.
Host Committee Vice President of Administration Tony Mason says more than 7,200 individuals have already registered through the Indiana Sports Corporation to volunteer for Indianapolis Super Bowl-related events.
