 FORD AWARDS FIVE $1,000 SOCCER SCHOLARSHIPS
 DEARBORN, Mich., Aug. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Five Michigan youngsters


who excel in academics and athletics today were named winners of Ford Motor Company's (NYSE: F) $1,000 Soccer College Scholarships for 1992.
 The scholarships, awarded in conjunction with the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA), are presented to high school seniors who are members of the MSYSA.
 The winners are:
 Jason D. Champine of Troy (Troy High School) - Adrian College; Ragen A. Coyne of Livonia (Livonia Stevenson High School) - Notre Dame; Scott R. Merritt of Okemos (Okemos High School) - Indiana University; Matthew P. Stokes of Saline (Saline High School) - Michigan State; and Laura E. Whiteley of Northville (Northville High School) - Kalamazoo College.
 Ford also supports several other youth soccer activities, including sponsorship with the MSYSA of the annual Wolverine Soccer Tournament held each summer in Livonia.
 The tournament is one of the Midwest's most prestigious youth soccer events, and last month attracted more than 3,000 participants from the Midwest, Northeast and Canada.
 Profits from the tournament support the Michigan Olympic Player Development Program, which is designed to prepare young athletes for Olympic tryouts.
 The program began to pay some dividends this summer at the Olympic Games in Barcelona. Alexi Lalas of Birmingham, Mich., a product of Michigan's Olympic Development Program, was a member of the United States team.
 Ford's sponsorship of youth soccer activities is part of its ongoing effort to support young people with quality opportunities to excel.
