JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM — According to the Military Child Education Coalition, approximately 80 percent of military-connected children are forced to move between 6-9 times as they complete their K-12 education, and changes in educational settings and curriculums come with these geographical moves.

With these unique challenges in mind, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service rewards military students who excel. Schoolchildren who receive a report card with an overall “B” average or better can pick up an array of free and discounted products through Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Exchange’s “You Made the Grade” program, which is also offered by the Schofield Barracks Main Exchange.

Now in its 12th year, You Made the Grade offers include a free Burger King hamburger kids meal, a Subway 6-inch combo, a magazine of their choice and a complimentary haircut. Students “making the grade” can also register for a drawing to win a $2,000, $1,500 or $500 Exchange gift card.

“Military students who excel in the classroom despite multiple moves and deploying parents deserve to be recognized,” said Terence Maynard, manager, Exchange, JBPHH. “While good grades are their own reward, this program recognizes the hard work and dedication required of pupils at the head of the class.”

You Make the Grade Participation

To receive a “You Made the Grade” coupon booklet, eligible students must present a valid military ID and proof of an overall “B” or better average to the SB or JBPHH Main Exchange.

Students can receive one booklet for every qualifying report card and may enter the gift card drawing only once per grading period. Call the SB Main Exchange at 622-8632 or JBPHH Exchange at 423-1304.
