Why Students Should Enter to Win the Library Research Prize

Blog post written by Taylor Matto, Library Social Media Student Assistant

Are you on the fence about applying for the 2018 Library Research Prize? Here are 4 reasons to motivate you to complete your application:

1. You’ll Become Rich

When you enter to win the Library Research Prize you can potentially win $1,000. That’s a lot of money. Just think of all of the things you can use that money for- endless coffees and bagels from Einstein’s, books for next semester and seniors could even use the money to help put a deposit down a new apartment. Don’t let all of your hard work go unrewarded.


2. Bragging Rights

You put a lot of hard work into your research you deserve to flaunt your hard work for all to see. Even if you don’t win, everyone will know that you did some serious research and if you do win, the University will recognize you for all of your hard work. YAY!


3. The Application Process is Good Practice

Whether you are applying to internships, full time jobs or grad school, you will need to fill out an application form of some sort.  The more you practice the better you will become. Oh, and application for the Library Research Prize is rather short.


4. The Librarians Would LOVE to Hear from You

Not only are DNL librarians there for you through every step of the research process, but also they are extremely proud of all of the amazing things their students accomplish. Enter so they can have the opportunity to brag about you as well!
