The highlight of the North American Sea Glass Festival (September 27 & 28 in Cape May, NJ) is the contest for the most unique and rare shards of genuine sea glass. The contest awards $100 prizes in several different categories including Marbles, Pottery, Art Glass, Toys, Buttons, Bottle Stopper, Historical, Figural, and Most Unusual. The Grand Prize of $1,000 is awarded to the winner of the Overall Beauty category.
The Shard-of-the-Year (SOTY) contest is held in memory of Joanne Schrieber, founder of the 2004 North East Sea Glass Festival. All shards of genuine sea glass from around the world are eligible for entry. As usual, festival exhibitors, their families and booth personnel are not eligible to enter the SOTY contest.
