NOMINATIONS OPEN IN MINNESOTA FOR $2,500 ASHLAND OIL TEACHER AWARDS

 ASHLAND, Ky., Nov. 18 ~PRNewswire~ -- Know a great teacher? Ashland Oil, Inc. (NYSE: ASH) invites anyone interested in showing appreciation to an outstanding teacher to nominate them for one of 10 1993 Ashland Oil Teacher Achievement Awards in Minnesota.
 Nominations are open through February 13, 1993. Forms are available at all primary and secondary schools and SuperAmerica stores throughout Minnesota.
 Now in its fifth year, Ashland Oil's Teacher Achievement Awards program is highly respected and sought after among Minnesota teachers," said Minnesota Education Association (MEA) President Robert E. Astrup. "When you see teachers involved in innovative educational activities, you usually will find at least one or two who are Ashland Oil Teacher Achievement awards winners or nominees."
 Sandra Peterson, president of the Minnesota Federation of Teachers agrees. "Ashland Oil's awards honor teachers who not only encourage but give courage to their students. As award winners, they glory not only in the public recognition, but also in the knowledge that someone felt strongly enough about their abilities to nominate them."
 Dan Lacy, vice president of corporate communications for Ashland Oil explained his company's interest in maintaining the awards program. "Our company has been intimately involved in all facets of educational support, ranging from encouraging employee involvement to developing extensive advertising campaigns to creating classroom teaching aids.
 "Although educational trends change, one constant factor is the dedicated, caring teachers who have immeasurable impact on students' lives. Ask any adult about a favorite teacher, and you will hear about how a special teacher's encouragement or kindness helped them through a difficult situation."
 Ashland Oil has mailed counter card displays with self-mailing nomination forms to all public and private schools in four states - Minnesota, Kentucky, Ohio and West Virginia. Any full-time licensed teacher currently teaching kindergarten through grade 12 in Minnesota is eligible, Lacy explained. Once a teacher is nominated, he or she will receive application materials to be completed and returned no later than March 15, 1993.
 The application materials request information concerning teaching philosophy, reasons for entering the profession, educational development, professional achievements and community service. Submitted application materials are judged by a panel of education professionals from the four-state region. Each of the 10 state winners will receive a cash award of $2,500 at a special ceremony in May 1993 during Teacher Appreciation Week.
 In addition to the 10 cash awards, Ashland Oil also recognizes all applicants placing in the top 15 percent with a Golden Apple Achiever Award certificate.
 Ashland Oil, Inc. is a diversified energy corporation engaged in petroleum refining, transportation and marketing; retail gasoline marketing; motor oil marketing; chemicals; coal; highway construction; and oil and gas exploration and production.
