ASHLAND OIL PROGRAM RECOGNIZES DEMANDS MADE ON MINNESOTA TEACHERS

 ASHLAND, Ky., Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Challenges of classroom teachers change daily as they work to ensure that students have the self- esteem, knowledge and skills to succeed. For the sixth consecutive year, Ashland Oil Teacher Achievement Awards will honor the achievement of outstanding Minnesota teachers who successfully balance the many components of learning, the company announced today.
 The general public is invited to nominate an outstanding teacher for one of ten 1994 Ashland Oil Teacher Achievement Awards in Minnesota. Each winner will receive a cash award of $2,500 at a special ceremony in May 1994 during National Teachers' Week.
 "Nomination forms are available through SuperAmerica stores and all public and private primary and secondary schools in Minnesota and must be received by Feb. 1, 1994," said Dan Lacy, vice president of corporate communications for Ashland Oil (NYSE: ASH). The Teacher Achievement Awards program also is being conducted in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.
 Any full-time licensed teacher currently teaching kindergarten through grade 12 in Minnesota is eligible.
 Nominated teachers must submit application materials which include information on teaching philosophy, reasons for entering the profession, educational development, community service and professional achievements. All submitted materials must be completed and returned no later than March 15, 1994, and will be judged by a panel of education professionals from the four-state region.
 "The teachers who have received this award over the years have not been satisfied with excelling in the classroom alone," Lacy said. "They work hard to expand lifelong learning opportunities for themselves as well as for their students. And, they use their talents and resources in the community to improve conditions whenever possible. Their commitment to education is evident in all areas of their lives. The outstanding teachers provide excellence across the board, in everything they do."
 In addition to the 10 cash awards, Ashland Oil will recognize all applicants placing in the top 15 percent with a Golden Apple Achiever Award certificate.
