Members of the EMUS SEM user group sponsored prizes for the best drawings of things seen under the microscope, in each of three schools, Bakalarr [MAP showing Bakalarr school], Jarreng [MAP showing Jarreng school] and Sinchu Baliya [MAP showing Sinchu Baliya school] - one prize per year group for each school.

At Sinchu Baliya, children from Grades 5 and 6 had drawn up to three items each and the teachers had selected the ten best entries from each grade. The overall standard was very high, particularly when one considers that these children had never looked through a microscope before. We decided to give three prizes in each Grade - these are two of the six winning entries.
