Salute to Education is a scholarship program funded by the Miami-Dade & Broward County Ford, Lincoln Dealers, and the Ford Motor Company Fund. Usually, they have their annual awards luncheon celebrating the 50 students from each county.

This year, due to the pandemic, parents were asked to record the students opening their congratulatory letters.

Each student receives $1,000 towards their school tuition plus $500 in any school supplies or electronic equipment.
