The Byra J. and William P. Wreden Prize celebrates student collections of books, manuscripts, and other printed works on paper; it rewards three students for presenting well-written, thoughtful, and competent essays on the importance of their personal collections, from the standpoint of the significance or appeal of their form or content. The first-prize winner at Stanford will be eligible to compete for an additional $2500 national prize.
Applicants for the Wreden Prize must submit a short essay and a bibliography. To read winning essays from prior years and for detailed contest guidelines, please visit this page.
