The Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s Made the Grade program is offering students in grades one through 12 who achieve a B average or better on their report cards a chance to win awards and a savings bond worth up to $5,000.

The mail-in drawing for the bond is the most valuable prize in the program, now in its 10th year. Other awards include a coupon-filled booklet that offers free or discounted meals at AAFES restaurants, savings on movie rentals and discounts on DVD purchase, according to an AAFES news release.

Students with a valid Department of Defense ID card and proof of an overall grade average of B or better can pick up the awards package by contacting their local exchange. Students can receive one coupon package for every qualifying report card, but can enter the savings bond drawing only once per year.
