O'Charley's Restaurant hosting "Greatest Grad" contest

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

O'Charley's Restaurant is kicking off a "Greatest Grad Contest," to honor deserving graduates with special graduation celebrations at their local O'Charley's restaurants. The contest will runs through May 18th, 2012.

"We are excited to reward those individuals who have worked hard to accomplish their goals of continuing their growth and development through education," said Marc Buehler, president of O'Charley's. "We want to be able to recognize the commitment and drive of these individuals who have accomplished so much to not only better themselves but their families and communities in the process. O'Charley's is committed to supporting education at all levels and wants to celebrate those individuals during this important milestone."

O'Charley's guests and fans can nominate anyone who will graduate this year from any educational program at any level. To nominate a deserving grad, entries must include a brief essay describing why the graduate being nominated deserves a special celebration courtesy of O'Charley's. Nominations should be submitted through either the O'Charley's Facebook page or the O'Charley's website.

At the end of the contest period 12 winners will be selected, and O'Charley's will host special celebrations throughout the month of June at select restaurants honoring the graduates who have been selected. Following the internal judging process one grand prize winner among the 12 will be selected by the public to receive a new Apple® iPad.

"With 220 locations in 18 states, O'Charley's is proud to be a part of the life of the communities where we work and live," said Buehler. "Every year around this time, O'Charley's joins in on many celebrations and we see the proud families and friends of recent graduates. We recognize the honor and accomplishment associated with graduation, and this year we are making an extra effort to join in the celebration."
