About Salute to the Military

The Salute to the Military Contest awarded a check for $1,125 to each of four service members, active duty or veteran.

These service members were nominated by members of the community, who sent in essays about why they deserved the award.

A panel of judges reviewed the entries and selected the winners, who were then vetted to make sure they met eligibility requirements.

Winners will be announced on the WZDX News at 9:00 in June and featured in special news segments.
