BUDDING SCIENTISTS TO WIN CLASS TRIP TO HOLLYWOOD IN NEW CONTEST SPONSORED BY PREGO SPAGHETTI SAUCES

 CAMDEN, N.J., Nov. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- A classroom lesson in scientific thinking will earn a teacher and up to 25 students a chance to trade in their beakers for the big screen.
 In a sweepstakes sponsored by the makers of Prego Spaghetti Sauces, one teacher will be selected at random to win a trip for his or her class to Universal Studios in Hollywood. Winner will be chosen from among teachers who order a kit featuring a Prego thickness experiment as an example of science used in everyday settings.
 Every teacher who completes the kit's feedback post-card will receive a 100-label bonus certificate for use with Campbell Soup Company's (NYSE: CPB) Labels for Education Program.
 The Prego lesson kit includes two slotted spoons, coupons for Prego, and a step-by-step guide to teaching the "scientific method" -- the disciplined approach scientists use when determining whether a theory is correct. The lesson plan consists of a poster with eye-catching graphics and a guide for teachers to follow, with easy-to-understand definitions of technical terms like "hypothesis" and a detailed outline of proper procedures for measuring the thickness of spaghetti sauces.
 "Many students are probably already familiar with our television commercials using a slotted spoon to demonstrate the thickness of Prego Spaghetti Sauce," said Aaron Wadell, who leads marketing efforts for Campbell's Italian sauces.
 "By using that familiar situation, the lesson plan underscores that science really is all around us, showing students how to learn from everyday situations," Wadell said.
 The contest is open to teachers of students in grades 4 through 12. Entries must be on an official form postmarked by Dec. 31, 1993, and received by Jan. 7, 1994.
 To obtain contest rules and lesson kit, a teacher should send name, school, grade level, address, city, state and zip code to: Prego Kit Request/Sweepstakes, P.O. Box 2070, Grand Rapids, MN, 55745-2070.
