Competition Rules:

1. Only paid members of the Madison Gem and Mineral Club may enter, personally working or fabricating the material unless otherwise designated.

2. No prior-winning competition items eligible.

3. Read the competition requirements carefully. Only one entry per month, but item may be entered in other months if it qualifies (non-previous winner).

4. No highly radioactive specimens should be brought to the Competition or for Show-and-Tell.

Unless specifically instructed, the specimens for the Competitions can be self-collected or purchased or given to you by somebody else.

It will be nice if you tell us something about the specimens that you are entering in the competition. Please write a couple of sentences on an index card (or similar small sized piece of paper) so we can learn something about it. We might also try to write articles for the Agateer highlighting winning entries.
