2022 – restarting the CCFMS Awards – three 2022 winners

After a hiatus of a number of years, the CCFMS board decided to restart the CCFMS Awards in 2022.

We re-structured the awards so that CCFMS-affiliated clubs members could easily be nominated and WIN

– acknowledging long-time contributions to rockhounding and lapidary

– as well as acknowledging budding pebble pups and future geologists/paleontologists/jewellers.

We kept the Public Education and Outstanding Company and Landowner Awards.
