Applestein-Sweren Book Collecting Prize Application is Now Open!
The Goucher College Library is once again holding the Applestein-Sweren Book Collecting Prize, a competition for book collectors.
Goucher students: Do you love books? Want to win $150, $250, or even $500 for a collection of books and related ephemera? The Goucher College Library is calling for entries for the Applestein-Sweren Book Collecting Prize, a competition for book collectors made possible by an endowment established by Betty Applestein Sweren ’52 and Dr. Edgar Sweren.
Collections can be on any subject, can include other types of media related to the books in the collection, and the contest is open to all Goucher students.
Winners will be given the chance to curate a small exhibition of their collection in the Goucher College Library. The first prize winner will also be eligible for a $2,500 national prize.
