 FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANTS TO BENEFIT FLORIDA SCHOOL CHILDREN
 TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The Environmental Education Foundation of Florida Inc. has awarded funds totaling $99,607 to Florida schools and school districts plus a museum of science, all for the purpose of advancing environmental education for students in the state.
 Kash n' Karry Food Stores, in association with Seiyu Ltd., underwrote the grants. They represent the first special-grant program for the foundation.
 Recipients, 11 in all, were selected from a pool respondents to the Foundation's Request for Proposals. "Our goal was to support as many projects as we could that met the criteria of originality and measurable benefits in the area of environmental education," says Dwaine Raynor, executive director of the foundation.
 The Foundation develops environmental education programs statewide and raises funds for that purpose. A nonprofit corporation, the foundation was established in 1989 by the Executive Office of the Governor.
 Recipients of the $99,607 are:
