SHAWNEE, Kan. ? A group of local middle school students are lobbying
to change state history. The students with Monticello Trails Middle
School, which is part of the De Soto School District, are headed to
Topeka to argue for an official state rock.

Chris Sprenger, an 8th grade student at the school, is determined to
make the meteorite the official Kansas state rock.

?The meteorite really has a connection with Kansas that it really
doesn?t have with any of the other states in the U.S.,? Sprenger

Sprenger and more than 100 other students in the district pitched the
bill to Representative Brett Hildabrand.

Lobbying for a state rock has challenged the students across the board.
In social studies they?ve learned how bills are passed, in science
they?ve learned about geology and rocks and in communication arts
they?ve spent hours working on their proposal essays.
