 EDISON PLAYS 'MATCH-MAKER' BETWEEN BUSINESS
 AND EDUCATION AT PARTNERSHIP FAIR
 INDUSTRY, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- The following was released today by Southern California Edison:
 You're teacher in Southern California and you have a great idea to develop a new program that makes teaching science and math a snap -- but you don't have the budget to make it happen.
 You're a business that feels strongly about funding education, but you don't know how to find a program you want to support. Enter Southern California Edison's Business and Education Partnership Fair.
 "The Partnership Fair is a unique forum for businesses and educators to meet and collaborate on quality programs for our schools," said Tani Welsh, Edison's manager of educational services. "By playing 'match- maker' Edison brings creative ideas and funding together under one roof," she added.
 Along with the support businesses are providing, Edison is sponsoring a $100,000 grant competition at the Fair which was held at the Sheraton Industry Hills Resort in the City of Industry. More than 450 educators entered the competition and showcased new and existing programs for "at-risk students," kindergarten through high school.
 Edison awarded a total of $100,000 to 16 different programs. This year's grant recipients are Raymond Cree Middle School, Palm Springs; Fremont Elementary School, Long Beach; Bonita Street School, Carson; Sunny Hills High School, Fullerton; Pio Pico Elementary School, Santa Ana; Remington Elementary School, Santa Ana; Williard Elementary School, Rosemead; Wilson Middle School, Exeter; Neil Armstrong Elementary School, Diamond Bar; Orangewood Elementary School, West Covina; Calle Mayor Middle School, Torrance; Belvedere Elementary School, Highland; Somis Elementary School, Somis; Fruitvale Elementary School, Hemet; Casey Elementary School, Rialto; and Earlimart Middle School, Earlimart.
 "The fair is only the beginning of our commitment to build an even stronger relationship between the business community and education. The backbone of good business is a strong educational system and Edison will continue to take a leadership role in this important area," she added.
