Eastern Illinois University students who have used Booth Library and archival resources to enhance their research are encouraged to enter the library’s “Awards for Excellence in Student Research and Creativity” program.
The program is open to all Eastern Illinois University students. If campus finances allow, cash prizes of up to $300 will be awarded, in addition to certificates of recognition.
The student entry may be a written work, art piece, exhibit, musical work, documentary, performance or another format.
The 2017 guidelines, application and form can be found here. For more information, call 581-6061.
Entries should be delivered to the Administration Office, Room 4700, Booth Library, no later than March 24. Recipients will be selected by April 7, and the winners will be announced during National Library Week, April 10-14. Works submitted for competition must have been completed within the last 12 months.
These awards are not intended to duplicate or replace any other standing campus awards. Selected entries will become a part of Booth Library’s Student Research and Creativity Collection.
During the spring semester, Booth Library’s regular hours will be from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 1 a.m. Sunday.
