The contest was open to the children (age 5 up to high school students) of Telluride and submissions were received in November of 2013. Last year’s winner was Emery Berry. A rug woven based on winning design will be featured in AZADI Fine Rugs galleries across the country. The award recipient will receive $500. The student’s teacher the also receives $500. The rug will be auctioned with 50% of the proceeds of the rug will go to the GoodWeave Organization which works to prevent child labor in the rug industry and 50% going to the child’s school.
