We publish from Gems & Gemology‘s G&G eBrief
The 2010 Gems & Gemology Challenge is open through Aug. 2. In addition to improving your gemological expertise, participation has some concrete benefits: Readers who score 75% or higher will earn a special letter of completion; score 100% and your name will be published in the Fall 2010 issue!
The Challenge is also being offered online again, so participation is easier than ever. If you have a print subscription, you can take the online version or complete the mail-in card (but not both — only the first entry received will be counted). If you have a PDF-only subscription, you must complete the Challenge using the online method.
If you have any questions about the Gems & Gemology Challenge, please e-mail managing editor Tom Overton.
Remember, all entries must arrive no later than Aug. 2, 2010. Participants will be notified of their scores after the deadline. Good luck!
