How Students Benefit

Get where you’re going with a little help from the Wendy’s High School Heisman recognition award program.

Kudos to you! If you’re considering applying for the Wendy’s High School Heisman Program, you’ve already accomplished a great deal in your high school career. And the program can help you and your school get the recognition you deserve.

Get recognized.

The Wendy’s High School Heisman Program recognizes outstanding seniors and their schools at every stage of the program. Everyone who completes an application can download an official certificate. And if you’re selected as a school, state, or national finalist, you’ll receive a Heisman Patch as well as an official winner’s certificate, medal, or trophy from the program. Plus you’ll be recognized by your school, community, and possibly the nation at special events and ceremonies.

Participating and winning this recognition award will look great on your college and scholarship applications and your resume. But the ultimate reward is the close community of Wendy’s High School Heisman winners you’ll be apart of and the acknowledgement you will receive for a job well done.

Get rewarded.

The first 25,000 students to apply for the program will receive a Wendy’s Gift Card worth $10 dollars. Winners at each stage of the program also receive increasing amounts of additional Wendy’s Gift Cards, with $500 Gift Cards going to our two National Winners!

As you progress from stage to stage, you can also earn cash prizes for your school. The high schools of all 12 National Finalists each receive a $2,000 donation in the Finalist’s name. And the high schools of our two National Winners will receive $10,000 in donations in the student’s name!  Learn more about the program stages and awards.
