WHY:  Just as the collegiate Heisman is known for being the highest award in college football, the Wendy's High School Heisman Award, now in its 20th year, is one of the most esteemed awards at the high school level.

On November 4, 2013, one male and one female finalist from each state will be named State Winners. 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 13. National Finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on ESPN® 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 announcement on ESPN, December 14.
