Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2012, Cosmetologists Chicago (CC) will present an annual Leo Passage Gold Trophy to the top cumulative point-winner in the association's Stars Photo Competition. The award was created to memorialize Leo Passage, Chicago hair designer, educator, champion hairdressing competitor, CC member, entrepreneur and founder of Pivot Point International, a world leader in cosmetology education since 1962. Like the Original Gold Trophy that CC has awarded at its Midwest Beauty Show (now America's Beauty Show), the Leo Passage Gold Trophy will be engraved with each year's winning name to be displayed at Pivot Point's world headquarters and Academy campus in Evanston, IL. Each Leo Passage Gold Trophy recipient will receive a replica of the permanent trophy as well as a cash award of $1,000.
Look forward to more inspiration at America's Beauty Show, from March 3 to 5 at McCormick Place in downtown Chicago, and visit americasbeautyshow.com for registration and travel information. —Kristen Heinzinger
