 STUDENT INVENTOR IS HONORED AT KMART
 WHAT: Matthew Wade Mets, a third-grader in Warren, Mich., invented


the "Windshield Wiper Flicker" as part of the INVENT AMERICA! education program. The invention is designed to keep windshields free of annoying and sometimes dangerous snow and ice buildup.
 Matthew's great idea garnered him first place for his grade level in the statewide 1992 INVENT AMERICA! competition.
 Matthew will be honored for his innovative thinking in a ceremony at his hometown Kmart store. School and Kmart officials will present Matthew with prizes and his invention will be on display.
 Immediately following the ceremony, Kmart will hold a chalk-a-thon (a sidewalk drawing contest) for children in kindergarten through eighth grade.
 WHEN: Today, Saturday, Oct. 10, at noon
 WHERE: Kmart
 31200 Schoenherr Road
 Warren, Mich.

 WHY: INVENT AMERICA! is a nonprofit education program and invention competition designed to develop creative-thinking and problem-solving skills in elementary school children.
 INVENT AMERICA! student winners will be honored simultaneously at 400 Kmart stores across the country on Oct. 10.
 Kmart has been the official retail sponsor of INVENT AMERICA! since 1988 and became the award sponsor this year.
