The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is rewarding first- through 12th-grade military students who maintained a “B” or better average with the “You Made the Grade” program.

“We love it when military students excel,” said Paula Gunderson, the Fort Hood Exchange general manager. “So, it’s natural to encourage and reward great grades.”

For the past 13 years, the program has rewarded schoolchildren around the world with a “You Made the Grade” coupon booklet listing a multitude of free products and discounted offers.

The 2013 version includes a free Burger King hamburger kid’s meal, a Subway 6-inch combo, $2 off any new release CD or DVD at Power Zone and a complimentary haircut. In addition, qualifying students can register for a drawing to win a $2,000, $1,500 or $500 Exchange gift card.

Students can receive a “You Made the Grade” booklet by simply presenting a valid military ID and proof of an overall “B” average at the Fort Hood Exchange receptionist desk. Those eligible may receive one coupon booklet and submit one drawing entry each qualifying report card.

Military families can contact the Fort Hood Exchange for more information about “You Made the Grade” at (254) 532-6537.
