Wendy’s® recognizes Rock Port Lady Blue Jay, Jackie Bradley. A high character student-athlete who have displayed excellence and integrity both on and off the field as State Finalists in the Wendy’s® High School Heisman®. For Jackie, taking the easy way out or cutting corners isn’t an option and Wendy’s is proud to honor her dedication.
The State Finalists will go on to compete for the title of State Winner, where, for the first time ever, one male and one female student from each state will also receive a Wendy’s High School Heisman Scholarship. Each State Finalist will receive a bronze medal, a Wendy’s High School Heisman State Finalist patch and a $25 Wendy’s gift card. A complete list can be find at www.wendysheisman.com/results/.
Like the Heisman Memorial Trophy®, Wendy’s believes in the pursuit of athletic and academic excellence with integrity. Since 1994, Wendy’s and the Heisman Trophy Trust have been running the same play to perfection: honoring more than 600,000 of the nation’s most esteemed students. Our partnership succeeds because we share a common set of values wherein going above and beyond is the norm. We want to honor students who do the same and profile their stories of perseverance as a way to inspire the tomorrow’s senior class.
State Winners were announced on October 20, 2016 and received a $1,000 scholarship and a silver medal. From that group, 10 National Finalists will be selected. Their scholarship will increase to $5,000 and will receive a gold medal and a Wendy’s High School Heisman National Finalist Heisman patch. In addition, they’ll be invited to the Wendy’s High School Heisman Weekend, including the National Awards Banquet in New York City on December 9. During the banquet, one female and male winner will be honored as National Winners of the Wendy’s High School Heisman and their scholarship will increase to $10,000.
