The medal consists of a gold toned pin holding a blue and white striped ribbon attached to a medal. The pin has a “C” clasp closure on the back and a bar that holds the ribbon. The ribbon is looped over the bar and held in place with thread at the bottom corners of the pin and gathered on a jump ring at the bottom. The medal is clover-shaped, gold colored, and has a round bezel attached to the jump ring. In the center of the obverse of the medal is a relief depiction of two (2) male athletes in full length. Both athletes are depicted mid-run with the athlete on the left handing a baton to the athlete on the right. Printed in relief around the central figures is the text, [ATLANTIC CITY · H · S · RELAY CARNIVAL]. On the reverse of the medal, engraved in the center, is text that reads [COLLEGE FRESHMEN / ONE MILE RELAY / 1934]. Along the bottom edge is a stamped maker’s mark that reads, [BALFOUR].
