The 2016 Halstead Grant Winner will receive an increased prize of $7,500 in cash, $1000 in supplies and a feature article in a new, annual grant publication. The top prize also includes a trip to Prescott, Arizona; signature trophy; feature profile and jewelry showcase in catalog; extensive coverage on the Halstead website and social media channels; press release to industry and local media; and a feedback report from the judging committee.

New for 2016, Halstead Grant Finalists will receive $500 cash for Top 5 placement or $250 for Top 10 placement. Finalist awards also include: Coverage in the new annual grant publication; signature Grant Finalist trophy; blog profile; media exposure; press release assistance; and a feedback report from the judging committee.

Qualified applicants should be US jewelers who have recently launched independent metal jewelry lines with the intention of selling to a national audience. To apply, candidates must submit a portfolio and answers to specific business questions. The application is designed to encourage strategic planning and sound management practices amongst new jewelers.
