A lucky "Packer Backer" is going to the Fan Hall of Fame after beating out the competition.

Patricia Nevala of Menomonie, Wisconsin took home the prize at Tuesday's award ceremony winning some cool prizes. 

Fans are asked to nominate themselves, a relative or friend for the honor of being the 18th member of the Packers Fan Hall of Fame with an essay submission. Nevala's son nominated her.

"We've had season tickets for fifty years and we've just been back and forth a family thing. We started out with two tickets, then four to accommodate our kids and it's the grandkids taking over," she said.

Patricia will receive four club seats to a 2016 Packers home game; a $500 Packers Pro Shop gift certificate; a road trip for two to a 2016 Packers away game, including game tickets, air fare and hotel accommodations; and a one-year subscription to Packer Plus.
