What do I have to do

to Rockstar 2005 and Rockwatch Young Writer competitions.

These are two major national competitions for rockhounds and young geologists.

Basically, you can enter anything you like – as long as you enjoy doing it

and it’s to do with rocks or geology. In the past we’ve had paintings of

dinosaurs, collages, models of volcanoes, needlework, knitting, photo

collections, puzzles, word games, and even mini-books. Just have a go!

Prizes for Rockstar 2005

All nine winners will each receive £100-worth of geological equipment,

specimens, books, videos, or art materials or equivalent. In addition each

winner is invited to a special prizewinners' presentation which will be

featured in Rockwatch Magazine.

Some competition entries may be published in Rockwatch Magazine in full,

and we may use extracts from others. EVERYONE WHO ENTERS ROCKSTAR
