Wendy's Heisman

Wendy's® High School Heisman® Deadline: October 2, 2015

There is still time to refer students for the 2015 Wendy's High School Heisman awards!

Every year Wendy’s recognizes more than 5,000 of the best male and female high school seniors and rewards $120,000 in donations to schools across the country. Wendy’s is looking for the next class of remarkable students who excel in academics, athletics, and community involvement to receive the Heisman honors. The class of 2016 graduating seniors can apply at through this Friday, October 2, 2015

Please tell eligible students to apply or refer students using this online form.

To be eligible, a student must have:
  • Maintained at least a ‘B’ grade point average
  • Participated in one of 43 eligible school sponsored sports
  • Demonstrated active involvement in his or her community
Winners are identified at the local, state and national level.

Students receive the recognition they deserve and their school can be one of 100 high schools who receive up to $5,000 in donations.

The Wendy’s High School Heisman program is truly a stepping stone toward high achievements, and with college admissions growing more selective, a national award of this caliber can help students stand out. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to tell students to apply or nominate someone today.
