Wendy's has a Heisman & your kid gets a chance to shine!

In high school, students not only need to focus on their grades, but they often take on other
activities as well, playing baseball and tennis, writing for the school newspaper, volunteering in
the community, and serving on school committees. Though hobbies, these activities help teens stand out amongst 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 , 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.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Wendy’s and received a gift certificate to giveaway and to thank me for taking the time to participate."
