Since many of you teachers and media specialists would qualify for this
opportunity, I'm forwarding it to the list. (Thanks for the indulgence of

peace and tolerance.

>>>Federal Grant Workshop Announcement:
>>>The following description is for general dissemination. Please forward

>>>1998 and 1999 (approximately 100 a summer, 25 a week) to interact with
