This booklet presents two activities that received awards in the First Contest of Internet Application to Educational Activities in Japan. The first paper describes CHaTNet (Children Homes and Teachers Network) at the Tamagawa Gakuen school, winner of the Prime Minister's Award. CHaTNet is a network of 4,500 participants, including parents, students in grades 4-12, and faculty members. It is developing into a community crossing departmental boundaries in providing information on everyday education activities and acting as a forum for the collection of information and the exchange of ideas. The second paper describes the development of the "Yago-kyu" (dragonfly larvae saving) Net Project at Keio Yochisha Elementary School, winner of the Minister for Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology Award. In this project, 38 schools and groups nationwide made an investigation of the aquatic insects living in school swimming pools, and the "Yago-kyu" Net Project World Wide Web page was opened as a site for these activities. This Web page presents a simple way to carry out an investigation and view the data, and it provides a place where the organizations can communicate with each other. (MES)
