The winners of this year's competition will receive $500, $250, and $100 respectively. All student work will be on display at Jewelers of Birmingham member stores from April 13th through April 27th, and the public will be able to vote for their favorite piece in each store. The winner of the “People's Choice Award” will win special prizes donated from area merchants.
