(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — In recognition of National Historic Preservation Month in May, the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) today announced a photo contest asking people to share pictures of themselves, family, or friends at their favorite or most personally meaningful historic sites.


The contest can be entered beginning May 1 by posting the photo on the ACHP Facebook page with the hashtag #MyHistoricPlace or on the individual’s own Twitter or Instagram feeds using the same hashtag and tagging @USACHP. A brief caption should accompany the photo that includes the name and location of the historic place.


People may cast one vote per week to select that week’s winner. The weekly winner will be announced each Thursday? in May, starting May 9, on the ACHP’s social media sites. The winners will receive a historic preservation prize package. To vote, go to https://woobox.com/7f3nie.
