The UCR Libraries Student Book Collection Competition for the Awarding of the Petko Prize for 2005 - 2006 is made possible by the generosity of Dr. Edward Petko, the son of Adam Repan Petko.  This competition is an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students at UCR to display their talents in assembling and organizing a personal book collection. Student collections need not consist of rare or expensive books. The focus of the collection can center upon any subject or topic.
Application and contest rules are available at the Circulations Desk of each of the libraries on campus.  Winners are eligible for the Fine Books & Collections magazine’s Collegiate Book Collecting Championship (http://www.finebooksmagazine.com/contest/).  For further information and advice applicants may consult with:
