Of those State Winners, 12 will be chosen as National Finalists and will go on to compete for the National Winner title in New York City on December 7. National Finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on ESPNĀ® networks and will receive gold medals and $2,000 awards for their high schools. One male and one female National Winner will receive a crystal Wendy’s High School Heisman trophy, a $500 gift certificate to Wendy’s, and Wendy’s will donate $10,000 to each winner’s respective high school. Additionally, the winners will be recognized during the collegiate Heisman Trophy broadcast on ESPN, December 8.
