By Alexander Muth, winner of the Find the Baby Bison Contest
My name is Alexander Muth. I just turned twelve last week, and I will be going into the grade six class at Trillium Waldorf School in Guelph, Ontario. I go to the ROM a lot and it is just about my favorite place because I am very interested in the kind of things that are there.
This past winter, my class went on a trip to the ROM to see the Maya exhibit and the Ancient Egypt stuff. We entered through the school entrance, so I never saw the sign that said, “Find the Baby Bison”. After our Maya tour there was some free time before we toured the Egyptian galleries, so my mother and I went to see the First People’s Gallery. In there, there was the baby bison! I filled in a ballot, thinking I might win a trip to the Toronto Zoo, but hoping to win the grand prize to Grasslands National Park!
In March I got an email telling me that I had won. I was extremely excited! And now, as the great day gets closer, I wonder about what it will be like, and what my favorite part will be!
