THE PRIZE
The Book Collecting Essay Prize is awarded as a $1,000 scholarship (disbursed Spring 2015) and a two-year OSU Friends of the Library membership each to one undergraduate and one graduate student winner.

 

ABOUT
The 2nd Annual Scholar Development and Undergraduate Research Book Collecting Essay Prize is a scholarship competition that encourages students to think critically about relationships between and among books. The prize is also a unique opportunity to develop competitive personal essay writing and open-format interview skills.

 

ESSAY EVALUATION CRITERIA
The book collection described may be either real (in possession of the student) or proposed (not in possession of the student). Both types of collections are weighted equally by the prize selection panel. You may define and describe your collection according to any criteria from author(s) and time period(s) to geographic area(s) and genre(s) and so forth. Your essay must demonstrate creativity with regards to the criteria that bind together your collection. Essays must also demonstrate in error-free prose both unique insight and intelligence. No minimum or maximum number of books is required, nor is preference given to larger collections.

 

ELIGIBILITY
All current Oklahoma State University undergraduate and graduate students in any major are encouraged to apply.

 

DEADLINE
E-mail due by 5:00pm CST Friday, November 7, 2014.
