ATTENTION PRINCETON STUDENTS: SUBMIT YOUR ESSAY TO WIN THE 2017-2018 ELMER ADLER UNDERGRADUATE COLLECTING PRIZE.
Deadline: Tuesday, November 28, 2017
Are you an avid collector of books, manuscripts, maps, photographs, or other materials found in libraries? If so, consider submitting an essay about your collection for a chance to win the Elmer Adler Undergraduate Book Collecting Prize!
Prize to be awarded to student essay, describing their compelling personal collection of books, manuscripts, or other materials found in libraries.
The personal essay is about a collection owned by the student that he or she actively collects or curates as opposed to an essay that focuses on whatever is found in one’s library. The essay should describe the thematic or artifactual nature of the collection and discuss with some specificity the unifying characteristics that have prompted the student to think of certain items as a collection. It should also convey a strong sense of the student’s motivations for collecting and what their particular collection means to them personally.
