NEW - Palaeontological Award Scheme

This message is to alert everyone in Geologists' Association Local Groups to a new palaeontological award scheme that has just been set up between the Natural History Museum and the Marsh Christian Trust Marsh Christian Trust. The Marsh Christian Trust is a charitable organisation that already sponsors more than 20 annual awards in science - there are no religious connotations or links to the awards.
The award consists of a certificate, £1000 prize and travel expenses to be presented after the Natural History Museum Annual Earth Science lecture on 6th November 2008.
The first Marsh Palaeontology Award is now open for nominations until 30th September 2008. Please consider submitting nominations - especially from 'unsung heroes' from the amateur palaeontological community, although the scheme is open to professional palaeontologists too.
