February 04, 2016 // Franchising.com // MILWAUKEE – Cousins Subs® and its Make It Better Foundation to offer $20,000 in scholarships to Wisconsin high school senior athletes as part of its fourth annual Wisconsin Sports Awards Scholarship Contest.
Now through Feb. 29, any high school senior who is graduating in 2016, has participated in a WIAA sanctioned sport and who has excelled in academics and community service, can apply for the scholarship.* Following the contest entry period, the Cousins Subs Make It Better Foundation Board of Directors will award scholarships to four finalists—two $7,500 scholarships to one male and one female and two $2,500 scholarships to one male and one female.
Finalists are awarded scholarships during the 2016 Wisconsin Sports Awards event held at Kohler’s private airline hangar on April 12, 2016 in Sheboygan Falls, Wis. Each finalist, and their family, will have the opportunity to attend the exclusive VIP event celebrating the best of Wisconsin athletics in high school, collegiate and professional arenas, walk the blue carpet and be recognized in front of Wisconsin's finest athletes.
“As a Wisconsin-based company invested in giving back to the communities we call home, we’re proud to support local high school athletes who are making a difference in their communities and who will go on to be key contributors to today’s workforce,” said Justin McCoy, vice president of marketing at Cousins Subs. “Year-to-date, we’ve awarded $40,000 in scholarships and seek to continue to assist students on their journey to reach their academic and athletic goals.”
The scholarships are funded through the Cousins Subs Make It Better Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to funding causes that address health and wellness, hunger and youth education in the communities that Cousins Subs serves.
