At 16:00 on Monday, February 20, Arnold Rüütel, President of the Republic of Estonia, will present the President’s prize to the best folklore collectors in 2005 in the Estonian Literary Museum. The nominees for the folklore prize according to the work contributed to the Estonian Folklore Archives in 2005 are Jüri Metssalu, student of Estonian history at the University of Tartu from Rapla County, and Tiit Birkan from Keila. Jüri Metssalu was awarded the prize for collecting regional lore from villages in Rapla County.
