Saskatchewan is represented by many official emblems, and this year, an official fossil emblem will be added to the list. The Royal Saskatchewan Museum is running a Saskatchewan fossil campaign, and our local fossil, Big Bert, is a candidate.  You can help Big Bert win the fossil campaign and become one of Saskatchewan's official emblems by voting online at Online voting is open from April 11 to 25, 2016.

As part of the campaign, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is offering a video contest to grade 7 classes from across the province. The contest includes a short video made by students promoting the fossil they think would best represent Saskatchewan.  Mr. Gray's grade 7 students are participating in the video contest, and you can guess which fossil they are promoting!  Videos from the contest will be posted on the Royal Saskatchewan Museum website soon. We will inform you as soon as you can view Arborfield School's grade 7 videos online. Good luck to Mr. Gray and his grade 7 class, and good luck to Big Bert!
