Program Competition

The purpose of the Program Competition is to encourage the production of earth science programs related to the rockhound hobby by the individual members and member clubs of the various Federations through the conduct of visual arts program competitions. As a result of the annual competitions, the member Regional Federations are provided with duplicate copies of the award winning programs. These programs are therefore available for use by the individual clubs and societies through their associated Regional Federation.

Naturally Tumbled Stones

These smooth and shiny stones were collected on a field trip sponsored by a club in the SFMS DMC field trip sharing program. The pebbles were naturally tumbled when they were carried then deposited by an ancient river.
