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.
As a mom of two daughters, both now college graduates, I’m certainly aware of how much work was involved in keeping their schedules straight when they were in high school.
Both of my daughters were athletes, competing in high school lacrosse matches as well as cross-country meets. In between figuring out their academic schedules, and the associated trips throughout New England and beyond college campus visits, it was amazing that the girls also found time to have part-time jobs.
Additionally, my daughters attended a private high school which required 15 hours of community service per school year as a requirement to graduate. Each of the girls had an excellent resume that they submitted when they filled out their college applications. Each daughter was recruited by coaches to play their respective sports at the college they decided to attend.
Wendy’s High School Heisman Award
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 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.
