The Shell Show chair, Jae Kellogg,  is pleased to announce that the following people will serve as judges for the 2019 Shell Show:

ARTISTIC -     Phil Dietz and Sue Hobbs

SCIENTIFIC -  Bob Pace and Dr. Ed Petuch

NOTE:  Exhibitors are responsible for selecting the correct category for their entries.  Two (2) new categories have been added in each Artistic Class. They are in RED ink – you won’t miss them. We have also updated all the Sailor’s Valentines categories, (pages 14-16). We hope this brings more Valentine makers to our show.  Those who work with the mini/micro shells and sea life in “LIKE” designs (no octagonal case) will also have their own categories.  PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.  If in doubt, and to avoid disqualification, prior to submitting your entry form, contact the Shell Show chair.
