Three journalists will receive the 2006 American Gem Society's Richard T. Liddicoat Journalism Award.  Cynthia Zarin of the New Yorker, Carole Schrock of The Star Newspapers and Russell Shor of Gems & Gemology Magazine are this year's winners.

Zarin's article "Green Dreams" is recognized in the category of Consumer National Reporting.  Schrock's "Essential Elements" for Consumer Local Market Reporting and Shor's "A Review of the Political & Economic Forces Shaping Today's Diamond Industry" for Industry Reporting.

The American Gem Society developed the Richard T. Liddicoat Journalism Awards for journalists reporting in four categories: Jewelry Industry/Trade Reporting, Technical Journals, Consumer Reporting in National/Multiple Markets, and Consumer Reporting in a Local Market on topics such as the understanding of gemology, as well as the AGS ideals of ethics, education and consumer protection.

The winners will receive their awards at the AGS Circle of Distinction Dinner on Tuesday August 1 at the Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Center.  Each awardee will be presented with a check for $1500, an etched crystal award and a $1,000 donation to the Richard T. Liddicoat Scholarship Fund at the Gemological Institute of America in the name of the award recipient.
