AT&T ANNOUNCES 'SPIRIT OF OLYMPIC GAMES' POSTER CONTEST

 AT&T ANNOUNCES 'SPIRIT OF OLYMPIC GAMES' POSTER CONTEST
 PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Although the torch has


just been extinguished at the site of the Winter Olympic Games, AT&T is keeping the spirit of competition alive here in the United States. During the month of March, young artists can compete for a gold commemorative medal and a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond in the AT&T "Spirit of the Olympic Games" Poster Contest.
 "We're encouraging students to use their imaginations -- and some paint, colored pencils, crayons, pastels, or almost any other medium (except photography) -- to illustrate a theme of Olympic competition," said Mary Jackson, sales vice president for AT&T Phone Centers. "They can illustrate the thrill of victory, or create an image of team spirit, or picture the lively and brilliant pageantry of the games; whatever the Olympics means to them."
 The contest is open to children in grades 3-12 throughout the United States. In each of four geographic regions of the country (North, South, East and West), one gold, one silver and one bronze medal winner will be selected from each of the following groups: grades 3-5, grades 6-8 and grades 9-12, for a total of 36 winners.
 "Gold medal winners will receive a $1,000 savings bond, silver medal winners will receive a $250 bond, and bronze medal winners will receive a $100 bond," said Jackson. The contest is being run in connection with AT&T's sponsorship of the 1992 Olympic Gam es.
 Interested students can pick up a list of official rules and an entry blank at one of the 400 AT&T Phone Centers across the country. Entries may be submitted by mail or in person at a Phone Center. To be eligible, posters must be received by mail or dropped off in person by March 31, 1992.
