Together with Canadian Jewellery Expos, the Vaccaro family is proud to present the second annual 'Vaccaro Family Scholarship'.


This scholarship is a design competition set to showcase the newest and brightest jewellery students and design programs in the Canadian jewellery industry.





The winning student designer will receive the scholarship award of $3000.00, post show profile advertising and exhibition space in either CJExpos 2019 event.

The accrediting college of the winning designer will receive an award of $1000.00 toward their program.


To be eligible, one must be a registered student of a recognized Canadian jewellery design or metalsmithing program during the 2017-2018 academic year.


Students who are wishing to participate can download the registration form here. Registration forms must be submitted to Canadian Jewellery Expos by May 31, 2018.

All entries will be on display during the 2018 CJExpos in Toronto and Edmonton. Expo attendees will vote on the winner! 

As a guideline, the finished piece should have an estimated retail value of $1500.00 and should fit in with the competition’s yearly theme – our 2018 theme is ‘Canadian Elements‘.

The finished piece of jewellery must be submitted for entry to CJExpos by July 10, 2018.
