Do you have a high school senior or know of someone who does? This is the time of year when mass college applications are being mailed, essays are being written, and scholarship hunting commences. Having had two kids graduate from high school recently, it’s still very fresh in my mind.
The Wendy’s High School Heisman program provides an opportunity for exceptional students to be recognized and to stand out from other college applicants.
This award celebrates high school seniors who excel in academics (3.0 +), athletics, and community involvement; in essence, recognizing them for all of the things they already do. Colleges want to see well-rounded students who demonstrate dedication and commitment, making this program especially relevant and accessible.
Students can apply at www.WendysHeisman.com, or a high school educator, guidance counselor, or coach can nominate them. As a little reward, the first 41,100 applicants will receive a free Wendy’s gift card in amounts ranging from $5 to $50.
One male and one female from each high school will win the award and continue on in competition for state and national awards. Twelve national finalists will participate in Heisman Weekend festivities during an all-expenses-paid trip Dec. 11-13 to New York City. ESPN2 will feature all 12 national finalists during the Wendy’s High School Heisman Awards Ceremony, which airs Dec. 13. The Wendy’s High School Heisman website will display the names of all applicants and individual school winners on October 22, 2009.
