(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.

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation commented on the National Park Service's Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for the National Register of Historic Places. The proposed changes have generated a lot of interest in the preservation community.

Attention college students and recent grads: apply to join the ACHP and Smithsonian Institution this fall in a Cultural Heritage Fellowship! The application deadline is Sunday, June 16, 2019, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.

The 2019 fellowship theme is Music Heritage of the District of Columbia. Those with an interest in learning more about the preservation of historic sites, intangible heritage, and artifacts within and around the nation’s capital as they relate to the preservation of music are encouraged to apply. The Smithsonian Institution could very well be the world’s largest museum of music, with more than 16,000 musical instruments, 100,000 pages of sheet music, 80,000 recorded music tracks, and approximately 400 musical activities per year.

Valerie Hauser, director of the ACHP’s Office of Native American Affairs, is in New York City this week attending the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues Eighteenth Session, serving as the U.S. State Department’s subject-matter expert. The theme of the two-week session from April 22- May 3 is “Traditional Knowledge: Generation, Transmission and Protection.”
