Got a book collection? You could be a winner in Chapman’s student contest
All you students with great book collections – perhaps that bulging bunch of science fiction titles you adore or a collection of poetry anthologies you started collecting back in fourth grade – might want to check out Leatherby Libraries’ John and Margaret Class Student Book Collection Contest.
The contest was inspired by Margaret Class, a Leatherby supporter and avid book collector who is sponsoring the contest in honor of her late husband and to encourage students to build personal libraries and celebrate the printed word.
There is a long tradition of such contests at universities and a little birdie told Happenings that our own Charlene Baldwin, dean of Leatherby Libraries, won just this type of contest when she was an undergraduate at California State University, Sacramento.
All Chapman University undergraduates are eligible to enter. And there are cash prizes for the winners! Entry deadline is April 6. More details are available at the John and Margaret Class Student Book Collection contest website.
