If your a mom or dad of a high school student, then you know all to well about how busy these kids become after entering high school. With high school comes homework, studying, sports and extra-curricular activities, but what many forget is that on top of it all, many high school students work hard donating their time to their communities and serve on school committees! I can’t quite figure out how any high school student keeps up with that kind of pace!
Although many of the above mentioned activities may be hobbies, these activities help students stand out among their peers when college applications roll around! With college admissions growing more and more selective, the Wendy’s High School Heisman program presents a great opportunity to help those students who have managed to balance so much, stand out. This award celebrates high school seniors who excel in academics, 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.
High school seniors who have a 3.0 average or higher, participate in a school-sponsored sport and contribute to their community can apply at http://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.
If your a parent of a High School Senior or know a High School Senior that would benefit from this awesome program, I encourage you to visit www.WendysHeisman.com and apply!
