Picture Yourself in a Historic Place! Enter the Historic Preservation Month Photo Contest

Celebrate National Historic Preservation Month along with the ACHP, National Park Service, and National Trust for Historic Preservation by entering the National Historic Preservation Month Photo Contest. Everyone is invited to share photos of themselves, family, and friends enjoying a historic place on their own social media sites simply by using the hashtag #MyHistoricPlace.

One winner will be picked weekly and announced each Tuesday in May on the ACHP’s social media sites. Winners will receive a fabulous historic preservation prize package!

You must tag the ACHP @USACHP, the National Park Service @NationalRegisterNPS(Facebook), @NPSCLP (Instagram), and @NPSParkCLP (Twitter), and the National Trust for Historic Preservation @savingplaces, and you must also include a brief caption that includes the name and location of the historic place.

We all have historic places we love - so share them with us! These sites allow visitors to become more aware of how to build a greater national preservation ethic while raising awareness of the many benefits of our nation’s heritage. Additionally, historic and sacred sites demonstrate to young people their connections to our collective stories.
