The Seahawks and Boeing will also select one additional organization to join LOY this season. Interested organizations are encouraged to submit nominations to http://seahawks.com/legionofyouth.

LOY is a unique community program created in 2014 to provide Seahawks game tickets to community organizations that serve youth throughout the Northwest. LOY provides 100 game tickets to a group or organization each regular season home game.
Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing recognizes and rewards students who are committed to their school work, demonstrate leadership, and are active in the community. It also recognizes kids who may be facing difficult challenges and need a positive boost.
"Empowering local youth is part of our long-standing commitment to give back to the communities where our employees live and work," said Kevin McAllister, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "We are so pleased to highlight and reward local kids who demonstrate exceptional leadership skills and set a positive example for their peers."
During each of the eight regular season games, 25 students will each receive four (4) game tickets, breakfast with a special visit from a Seahawks legend, concession vouchers, and a Legion of Youth Powered by Boeing sweatshirt.
The Seahawks and Boeing select the community groups that receive the tickets. The recipients for 2017 are:
