SHELL SHOW   An event, usually hosted by a SHELL CLUB, where many people display ("show") their shells (a portion of their SHELL COLLECTION) to the public. The displays usually are submitted in various categories (e.g., scientific, MINIATURES, art, one family, one species, etc.) for judging by selected experts. Ribbons, plaques, trophies, etc. are awarded to selected displays. A list of shell shows (and related events) is posted on the COA website.
