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.
The application from the student must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., central time, on Thursday, October 1 and as part of the process an official from the student's school will have to log in, go over the application and submitted it by October 6. Time is running out so if you know a high school senior that meets the criteria get them to apply now.
