The Kid's Corner at the Annual Rock & Mineral Show was a popular place not only for kids, but for teachers, parents and grandparents as well. People had the opportunity to "collect" thumbnail size specimens for twenty five cents apiece. Each specimen was accompanied by a label of what it was and where it came from. Workers at the Corner helped everyone learn a little bit more about the rocks. Thanks to Dawn, Vivian, Jacob, Madison, and Eric for helping out.

We also let any child under 16 sign up for a free rock tumbling kit which included a tumbler, grit and a book on how to start tumbling. Andrew Martesz was the winner. He is from Marquette and attends Superior Hills School. He was grinning from ear to ear when he heard that he had won. Hopefully he will become a future rock hound.
