Military students can turn good grades into rewards with the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s You Made the Grade program. From first-graders to high school seniors, pupils who maintain a B average or higher are eligible for the program that recognizes academic excellence.
The You Made the Grade program rewards military students with a coupon booklet filled with free offers, product discounts, and free food and drinks.
Students with a B average or better can also enter the You Made the Grade semiannual sweepstakes to receive gift cards worth $2,000, $1,500 or $500.
“The Fort Huachuca Exchange is proud to reward military students who make it their mission to do well in school,” said Fort Huachuca Exchange General Manager Jeff Hyatt.
“Servicemembers’ children face unique challenges inside and outside the classroom,” he said, noting MilitaryFamily.org reports that most military children will attend nine different schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. “The Fort Huachuca Exchange recognizes these students’ challenges, and they deserve to be rewarded.”
Students, including those who are home schooled, can receive a You Made the Grade coupon booklet by presenting a valid military I.D. and proof of an overall B average at the Fort Huachuca Exchange Customer Service Desk. Eligible students can pick up one coupon booklet for each qualifying report card.
Entries for the gift card sweepstakes drawing can be submitted twice a year, with drawings typically held in June and December.
