Wendy's High School Heisman Program & Giveaway!

I think I've mentioned before that my favorite fast food treat is a Wendy's Frosty. I have always liked the causes that Wendy's as a company has supported as well, so I was happy when Mom Central and Wendy's asked if I would blog about the Wendy's High School Heisman Program.

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.
  • Follow me on Twitter (AZMelly) & tweet a link to this blog post.
  • Write about this entry on your blog and link back to this post.
  • Share a link to this post on your Facebook Wall.
I'll leave comments open until October 1, 2009 and choose a winner on October 2, 2009 via  I will email the winner on October 2 and they will have 48 hours to send me their mailing address.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Wendy’s and received a gift certificate to giveaway and to thank me for taking the time to participate."
