Petko Student Book Collection Competition

The Awards Ceremony will be held in Special Collections & Archives,

Thursday, May 24, 2012.

The UCR Libraries Student Book Collection Competition was inaugurated in the academic year 2003-2004 in memory of Adam Repán Petko (1896-1995). Mr. Petko, an immigrant to this country in 1912, has a special interest in the literacy of his fellow immigrants, and in particular their young children, who had been denied a formal education in their native lands.

The purpose of this competition is to encourage students in the reading and assembling of books, and especially in the creation of their own personal libraries and book collections. A collection can comprise any subject or topic, and collections need not consist of rare or expensive books.

The competition is funded through the generosity of Dr. Edward C. Petko, Adam Repán Petko's son.
