 BARNETT AWARDS COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS TO 54 STUDENTS
 JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Barnett Bank presented


$63,000 in college scholarships to 54 high school students as sponsor of the Barnett Bank Academic Competition for Excellence, held at Walt Disney World, Orlando, Fla. this month.
 The competition is an academic "quiz bowl" for high school students. Teams representing 54 of Florida's 67 school districts competed in the areas of mathematics, science, English, social studies, the fine arts, foreign language and computer science.
 Teams are placed into three divisions, based on school enrollment size. Previously, only first- and second-place team members in each division received scholarships. This year, Barnett added scholarships for members of the third-place teams in each division.
 This year's first-place teams were from Pinellas, Collier and Suwannee counties; each team member received an $1,800 scholarship. Second-place teams were from Sarasota, St. Lucie, and DeSoto counties; each team member received a $1,000 scholarship. Third-place teams were from Brevard, Bay and Taylor counties; each team member received a $700 scholarship. The '92 tournament marks the sixth year Barnett has sponsored the event.
 With $32.9 billion in assets and 592 offices in Florida and Georgia, Barnett is the leading financial institution in Florida and the 19-th largest in the United States. The company's stock (BBI) is listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
