SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Military students can turn good grades into rewards with the Army and 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, which recognizes academic excellence.
The “You Made the Grade” program rewards military students with a coupon booklet filled with free offers and discounts, including a free regular 6-inch Subway sandwich and a Burger King Tendergrill chicken sandwich.

Those who “make the grade” will also score Snack Avenue coupons for a free 16-ounce drink and a complimentary hot dog.

Other offers include $5 off a $25 iTunes gift card, as well as discounts on clothing and shoes. 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 Hawaii Exchange is proud to reward military students who make it their mission to do well in school,” said Hawaii Exchange General Manager Floyd Wynn.

“Servicemember 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 Hawaii Exchange recognizes these students’ challenges, and they deserve to be rewarded.”

Entries for the gift card sweepstakes drawing can be submitted twice a year, with drawings typically held in June and December.

How to earn rewards
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 Schofield Barracks and Hickam stores customer service department. Eligible students can

pick up one coupon booklet for each qualifying report card.

Students and guardians can visit the Schofield and Hickam stores for more information about the “You Made the Grade” program.
