The Ozark Mountain Gem & Mineral Society is a non-profit organization whose mission is:
“To study and promote an interest in earth science, geology, paleontology, and mineralogy. To study and promote lapidary and the jewelry-making art, and conduct educational programs. To support youth activities and encourage interest in earth science and related areas on behalf of youth.” In an effort to fulfill that mission, we are offering the opportunity for teachers to encourage their students, who are under 18 years of age, to take part in our annual Rock, Gem & Mineral Show free of charge, if sponsored by a
To take advantage of this, simply print the attached Student Passes and fill them out with the School and Instructor’s Names on the pass side and the Student's Name on the Receipt side. At the door, one of our volunteers will tear the Receipt portion off, fill in the Date, and return the Receipt to the student for verification that they attended. We will keep the Pass portion as their entrance ticket. They will have representatives from the Missouri Institute of Natural Science, as well as an “Ask The Gemologist” table and private and vendor exhibits of rocks, minerals, fossils and gems.
This year, we will be presenting various geology and earth science related videos for our visitors to view throughout both days in one of our side rooms.
In addition, we are honoring printed copies of our show flier (attached, black & white are fine) as $1.00 off coupons for adult admission, to make the experience more affordable for accompanying adults.
We hope that you can pass this opportunity to the teachers in your system. --Mike Hackeson, President
