Before marshmallows were handed out last week at the Dawson County library, local teens and pre-teens were given roughly 45 minutes to build from scratch a catapult that would have the capability of launching said marshmallow. Tracy Walker, youth services coordinator at the library, greeted kids as they entered a room with multiple tables set up with supplies. Walker then gave brief instructions to the nine participants.
