Create your own GO GREEN themed masterpiece.  GO GREEN is an intentionally vague theme, it can mean anything from the color green to the green of our favorite plants, to the green energy revolution or anything green related. 

At home, make the most amazing piece of GO GREEN themed functional art glass that you can and bring it to CHAMPS Denver, November 3-5.  Best piece wins a cash prize and punches your ticket to compete in the CHAMPS Masters Finals in February.  

A Game of Marbles

1st - $1000 - 2nd - $500 - 3rd - $250

Nicest Set of Marbles and Winner of the game itself each qualify for the Master's Final


CHAMPS Glass Games is proud to present A Game of Marbles.  Bring a full set of marbles, 1 large shooter and 10 smaller pieces to participate in the game at the Denver CHAMPS show.  The nicest set of marbles wins the artist a trip to the CHAMPS Glass Games Masters Finals and a cash prize. 


At the show, competing artists will use their own set of marbles to compete in the actual game of marbles, also known as “Ringer”.  Use your shooter to knock your opponents marbles out of the ring.  First to knock out all ten of your opponent’s marbles wins the round. 


The event is tournament style, meaning winners continue on to the next round until a champion is crowned.  As the game progresses, more and more marbles are used in each contest, however winners get to keep an ever-increasing amount of the spoils of war.  A Game of Marbles is a great way to exchange your own work with some of your favorite competing artists and friends.  Winner of the actual marble game wins all of the marbles they “conquered” as well as a cash prize.

Goblet Grab

1st - $1000 - 2nd - $500 - 3rd - $250

1st Place Qualifies for Master's Finals


This is a twist on the standard contest, prize money and wild-card possibilities will be judged on by Glass Game judges, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd will win their respective prizes. The twist is, this is a grab-style contest, all artists will be "selling" their goblet for $100, CHAMPS will provide a redeemable ticket to the artist for the goblet. CHAMPS will sell tickets at $100, 1 per person, per availability of goblet/mug/cup/chalice/etc. at a first-come first-serve basis, e.g. If we have twenty entries, we will sell twenty tickets max, one per person max. All entries will be on display at the show. On Oct 24th, if there are any additional tickets available, people may purchase as many tickets as they want first come first serve basis. November 4th, 3:30 PM CHAMPS will draw #s for placement, when your # is called you have 30 seconds max to choose which entry you want to exchange your ticket for. If an artist would like to be involved in the "grab", they may submit a second entry, this entry will be in exchange for a $100 "grab" ticket, you will also have a chance to place twice. Do not bring a duplicate cup, this is going into your store owners collection, and we are looking for a "bigger, better, badder" grab. Also making two different Goblets gives a better chance to win. You MUST be present to win. Winners will be announced before close of the CHAMPS show, Nov 5.


-Goblets must be judged to be valued at a minimum of $100 to participate
