HILL AIR FORCE BASE — Besides handling daily schoolwork, studying and tests, military students face unique challenges, including coping with separation from parents during deployments and multiple moves. 

In fact, according to the Military Child Education Coalition, military children typically move six to nine times by the time they’ve completed 12th grade, with many making multiple moves during high school.

The Hill Exchange is rewarding military students who excel in the classroom with its You Made the Grade program, now in its 15th year. Students in first through 12th grades who maintain a B average or better are eligible to receive a coupon book filled with free offers and discounts. 

You Made the Grade offers for 2015 include free food items such as a Burrito Supreme or Taco Supreme from Taco Bell; small chicken Philly sandwich at Charleys; Popeye’s Chicken Po’Boy; and a bacon double cheeseburger and small fry from Burger King. 

Students who make the grade will also score Snack Avenue coupons for a free fountain drink, including the frozen Yeti drink, and a complimentary hot dog or roller grill item. Other offers include discounts on backpacks, shoes and more. 

Scholars can also enter the You Made the Grade semiannual sweepstakes to receive gift cards worth $2,000, $1,500 or $500. Entries for the gift card sweepstakes drawing can be submitted twice a year, with drawings typically held in June and December.

“The Hill Exchange understands and appreciates the sacrifices military students make,” said Hill Exchange General Manager Mark Downs. “Those who excel in the classroom, especially while dealing with multiple moves and parents’ deployments, deserve to be recognized.” 

Students, including those who are home-schooled, can receive a You Made the Grade coupon booklet by presenting a valid military ID and proof of an overall B average at the Hill Exchange customer service desk. Eligible students can pick up one booklet for each qualifying report card. 

Students and guardians can visit their Hill Exchange for more information about the You Made the Grade program.
