 EAST OHIO GAS INVITES COMMUNITY ORGANIZATIONS
 TO COMPETE FOR $10,000 NEIGHBORHOOD ENRICHMENT AWARD
 CLEVELAND, March 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Nonprofit community groups and organizations that helped to revitalize the economic climate of a Northeast Ohio neighborhood during 1991 can compete for the $10,000 Neighborhood Enrichment Award from The East Ohio Gas Company.
 Company officials today announced that neighborhood revitalization groups throughout its 20-county service area can compete for the unrestricted grant until April 30, 1992. Four finalists from Northeast Ohio will be selected by a panel of judges to vie for the $10,000 top award. The three other finalists will receive unrestricted grants of $2,500 each. The winners will be announced in June.
 The Neighborhood Enrichment Award was established last year to honor a community organization which made a major contribution to the economic and social revitalization of Northeast Ohio. The Neighborhood Enrichment Award, funded with stockholder money, is provided through The East Ohio Gas Company Fund, part of the Consolidated Natural Gas (CNG) Foundation. Last year's winner was The Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization (DSCDO), in recognition of its redevelopment of the historic Gordon Square Arcade into a thriving retail, office and apartment complex.
 "The Neighborhood Enrichment Award program serves a vital need in the economic support of the communities we serve," said Patrick A. Carney, vice president of public affairs for the East Ohio Gas Company. "Grants such as this serve as a stimulus for community involvement and enhance the overall quality of life in Northeast Ohio neighborhoods."
 During the first year of the program, 18 entries were received from throughout the Greater Cleveland area. Encouraging response in Cleveland led to expansion of the program in 1992, throughout East Ohio Gas' service territory. Areas include Akron, Ashtabula, Canton, Wooster, Warren, Youngstown and Dover/New Philadelphia.
 A panel of community leaders representing each of the areas will serve as entry judges.
 Organizations that compete for the award must have a governing board of a majority of residents or business people from the group's service area, must be tax exempt IRS 501 (c) (3) organizations and must have a neighborhood focus. The groups must have maintained their goal of economic and community development, and the panel will evaluate the groups' contributions to the revitalization of a housing, commercial or industrial market in the targeted neighborhood during 1991.
 In addition to a written proposal, an organization is also asked to submit support materials such as photographs, videotapes, printed literature, artwork, etc. All support materials will be returned to the senders. There are no pre-printed application forms.
 Entries should be mailed to: John Wilbur, manager, Consumer and Educational Relations, The East Ohio Gas Company, P.O. Box 5759, Cleveland, Ohio, 44101-0759.
 Persons who have questions about the entry procedures can call Wilbur, 216-726-6413.
 Cleveland-based East Ohio Gas is the largest subsidiary of Consolidated Natural Gas Company, headquartered in Pittsburgh. The 2,500 employees of East Ohio Gas serve more than one million residential, commercial and industrial customers in 269 Northeast Ohio communities.
