WFAA-TV and The North Texas Buick Dealers are proud to offer a unique program that recognizes outstanding high school athletes in our area. The North Texas Buick Dealers Scholar Athlete segment airs during Dale Hansen's Sports Special television program, which airs on Sundays at 10:35 p.m. on WFAA. We have a selection process in place that considers a variety of factors when selecting the potential Scholar Athletes:

  1. Scholastic achievement
  2. Athletic accomplishments
  3. Community service and school involvement

We are pleased to announce we have opened the program to both high school seniors and juniors, graduating the spring of 2020 or 2021. 

In addition to the above criteria, when selecting your male or female nominees from all sports programs, please know that we encourage diversity among the students in this program. The selection committee chooses athletes from the nominees that best meets the criteria. Also note that applications are accepted and held on file year-round. When a student is chosen, the selection committee will reach out to the parents and student to notify them.

We are passionate about this local program and recognizing good kids in our area; and we look forward to receiving your North Texas Buick Dealers Scholar Athlete nominations.
