Volunteer Recognition Award Brooch Design Contest

SNAG is looking for the next Volunteer Recognition Award Brooch design!

2015 VRA pinEach awardee receives a specially designed brooch as a thank you from SNAG. Every three years SNAG looks for a new design from a school/group of students. The first design (2015) was created by Ross Tanner and Grand Valley State University. We thank them for this first amazing design.

SNAG is now looking for a new design for the next three years. Any group of students and/or school are eligible to submit a design (drawing/CAD/3D model) for the next three awardees starting in 2018. There is a stipend of $1,200 (total) for the three brooches and a free one year organizational membership for the winning school.

Please submit your design proposals to Gwynne Rukenbrod Smith by March 9, 2018.

Make it Shake, Rattle & Spin!

HDC Final-01Make it Shake, Rattle & Spin! This call-for-action was made to 100 lucky recipients of the 2016 Halstead Design Challenge kits. Each kit contained 50 components. Artists were asked to create a kinetic brooch using the supplies and adding a found object.

When the results came in, the jury was impressed by the diverse work created. Every artist put their own spin on things! Blue Spiral 1 in Asheville, NC will exhibit the top twenty juried-in pieces during the SNAGneXt conference in May. Look out for some very creative surprises!

Brooches will be for sale during the gallery exhibition. Unsold work from the exhibition will be featured in an online sale on SNAG’s website after SNAGneXt.

Here is a sneek peek at some of the brooches:
