COLNE Valley Museum chiefs have chosen their 100,000th child.
The Golcar-based museum held a competition for schools to celebrate its 40th year. Children were invited to enter a piece of art or written work to win a free day at the museum, becoming the 100,000th visitor in the process.
The winning entry came from a child from Ravenshall School, Ravensthorpe, who sent a plan to make a DVD of a day at the museum for other people to use. The entry was a proposed sleeve for the DVD drawn by the children.
Characters from the museum Susannah and Lizzie Pearson visited the school to present them with their prize and the class will visit the museum in February.
