Yokota Air Base – The Yokota Exchange is continuing its tradition of rewarding academic excellence through the Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s You Made the Grade program—honoring the resiliency of military kids worldwide.  

In its 22nd year, the You Made the Grade program honors academic excellence for students in first through 12th grades, including those who are home schooled. Yokota students who maintain a B average or higher are eligible to receive a $5 Exchange gift card each grading period.

“Our youngest heroes move multiple times, change schools and face parental deployments during their childhood,” said Yokota Exchange General Manager Julia Woods. “The Exchange’s You Made the Grade program celebrates military students for their resiliency during the challenges of military life. Their hard work pays off at the Exchange.”

Yokota students who make the grade qualify to enter a worldwide sweepstakes to win a $2,000, $1,500 or $500 Exchange gift card. Drawings are held in December and June. The most recent sweepstakes winners were from Camp Foster, Fort Knox and U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys.

To receive the $5 gift card, students can visit the Main Store customer service area and present a valid military ID with proof of a B average or higher.

To enter the You Made the Grade sweepstakes, students can complete the form on the back of the gift card reward sleeve and mail it to:

You Made the Grade
PO Box 227398
Dallas, TX 75222-7398

Students can submit one sweepstakes entry for each grading period. The next drawing will take place in June.
