2020 marks the 60th anniversary of the Oil Museum of Canada. Our anticipated celebrations will not be going as planned, but we still want to mark this milestone year. Save your drive-by party, instead we propose a contest; a mini model building contest!

Friends! It’s time to get building! We challenge you to build a mini model of a spring pole three-pole derrick, a Canada Drilling Rig, or jerker line system with pump jacks.

Before you start, for some inspiration, drive by the Oil Museum of Canada and the historic Fairbank Oil Fields to see the industrial technology that ushered in the early commercial oil industry in 1858 which is still in use today. You can even do our Oil Heritage District Driving Tour. https://www.lambtonmuseums.ca/oil-heritage-district-driving-tour/

Get creative and as fancy as you want! Gather your quaran-team together for this fun project and feel free to use materials you find around the house.

Complete your scale model by July 12th, 2020 and our expert judges, including Charlie Fairbank of Fairbank Oil Fields will pick our winning model(s).

How to enter:
1. Complete your scale model of a spring pole three-pole derrick, Canada drilling rig, or jerker line with pump jack(s)
2. Email a good photograph of your model no later than July 12th, 2020 to [oil.museum@county-lambton.on.ca] using the subject line OMC Mini Model Submission–if your mini model moves, send us a short video instead.
3. Include in your email the name(s) and age(s) of your quaran-team and describe the building process and the inspiration for your model.

If Provincial restrictions allow, we will invite people to bring in their models for display at the museum.

Winners:
After July 12th, 2020 our expert judges will choose their favourite model(s) and the winner(s) will be contacted by email.

Prize includes swag from our gift shop and a family membership to Heritage Sarnia-Lambton museums (a $60 value). Visit www.lambtonmuseums.ca/heritage-sarnia-lambton/ for a complete list of museums.
