PROGRAM AT A GLANCE
Initiated in February 2000, the You Made the Grade Program is designed to reward students in grades 1 through 12 for above-average academic achievement and to inspire them to work that much harder. Qualifying students can receive a booklet with various discount coupons on variety of items. To get the booklet, students must present a valid military ID card and proof of an overall "B" or better average to their local BX or PX. The overall objective of this program is to provide an incentive for kids to not only stay in school, but to excel in school.
Participating students must be in grades 1 through 12 and attending a public or private school, to include DoDDS. If a child is home-schooled, the student should provide written affirmation of their scholastic aptitude from a parent or other community-authorized education provider. Students must present a valid ID card and proof of an overall B average or better in order to participate.
Students may receive one coupon package for every grade report they receive, but may enter the savings bond drawing only once per calendar quarter. Each coupon package described above will contain an entry form which the customer will mail to an address preprinted on the inside front cover of the coupon booklet. Drawings will be held in January, April, July and October from among all of the entries received by the close of the preceding calendar quarter.
