SCHOOL OF JEWELLERY STUDENTS DESIGN OFFICIAL MEDAL FOR IAAF WORLD INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS.
Students at the School of Jewellery, which is part of Birmingham City University, have been asked to design the official medal for the IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018.
Following a presentation about the Championships, the students set about creating their medal designs and a top three were recently chosen by representatives from the IAAF World Indoor Championships' organising team.
The three designs are currently being evaluated and the winning design will be selected and unveiled a little later in the year.
Once the winning design has been agreed, the medals will also be made in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
Hosting the IAAF World Indoor Championships Birmingham 2018 provides an excellent opportunity to profile the city and as well as showcasing a unique area of Birmingham, this collaboration with the School of Jewellery will highlight that there are some extremely talented young people that either live in Birmingham or come to this city to learn and develop their skills and the School of Jewellery sets a great example for how this talent can flourish through great support and guidance
