The Trophy

The Regents' Cup trophy was sculpted and cast in bronze by accomplished artist and former 最新麻豆免费看Speaker of the House Rusty Bowers. Its design incorporates the delicate features of a lily pad contrasted by the sharp points of an agave cactus that is emblematic of Arizona's deserts. Bowers said the blending of these two opposites represents the speech that individuals strive to refine to have better communication. Watch the making of the trophy and listen to an interview with Bowers below.
