Since 1994, the WHSH program has recognized "the nation’s most esteemed high school senior men and women for excellence in academics, athletics, and community/school leadership." (From their website)
If you know of a high school senior who works hard at academics (has at least a B average), plays one of 27 nationally accredited sports and is active in their community, please encourage them to apply for this program! Applications are due by October 1, 2009 at 5PM (CST).
Wendy's gift cards ranging from $5 to $50 will be sent to the first 41,100 applicants, and every applicant will be able to download a certificate. The field is narrowed down little by little, until the finalists visit New York City & ESPN2 in December. For information about every level of awards, please visit the official WHSH website.
To help spread the word even further, Mom Central and Wendy's sent me a $20 Wendy's gift card to give away to one of my readers! You can earn one entry for completing each of the following (so 4 possible entries - each with a separate comment)
- Leave a comment telling me what sport you played in high school, or what sport your kids play, and if you know of a high school senior who will be applying.
