Elite high school scholar-athletes know all about the thrill of winning. Whether it’s acing the test, scoring the go-ahead point, or improving your community through service, you’ve tasted victory and know what it feels like to achieve your goals.
But you’ve never experienced anything like winning the Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship before. This program is all about recognizing and rewarding the absolute best of the best. At Wendy’s, we seek out high school senior athletes from schools across the nation who consistently perform at the highest level in the classroom, on the field, and in their communities. We look for leaders who push themselves beyond obstacles to set the example, and who inspire their peers and neighbors in the process. And then we recognize and reward these all-stars from every school and state by dishing out 100 scholarships ranging from $1,000 – $10,000 to help students continue to excel at the college level.
What’s the ultimate win?
Becoming one of our 10 National Finalists who are guaranteed at least a $5,000 scholarship while also receiving an invitation to Heisman Weekend in New York City. You’ll have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet and network with other high school greats while rubbing elbows with some of the most accomplished former collegiate and professional football players in the country. Our National Finalists will stand on the same stage as renowned collegiate Heisman winners including Archie Griffin, Bo Jackson, Barry Sanders and Tim Tebow while they are celebrated on ESPN.
Then, in one incredible moment, two National Finalists will get the glory of becoming our National Winners and earning $10,000 in college scholarships to advance their dreams.
Our past winners have gone on to achieve extraordinary success and accomplish amazing feats in their college and professional careers including the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. You could be next.
