Go For The Heisman, and some Wendy’s

September 30th, 2009 - By Stephanie Precourt

Ok, this is about the only time you’ll hear me talking about football. It’s for a good cause.

The Wendy’s High School Heisman recognizes the nation’s most esteemed high school seniors (guys and girls) for excellence in academics, athletics, and community & school leadership.

Applications are now being accepted- If you know a high school senior who has a 3.0 average or higher, participates in a school-sponsored sport and contributes to their community, have them apply at, or a high school educator, guidance counselor, or coach can nominate them.

Yum! 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. That’s some trophy for some very deserving person.

Win! And since I’m talking Wendy’s and you’re totally craving fries and a frosty now, leave a comment below if you’d like to enter to win a $20 Wendy’s gift card!

I’ll choose one comment at random after 11:59 PM Thursday October 1. Must be a US resident and one entry per person, please!

This post was made possible by Mom Central. I was also given a $20 gift card to Wendy’s and I plan to use it for lots of Frostys and fries.
