WASHINGTON – Lucy the Margate Elephant in New Jersey. The Watts Tower in Los Angeles. Burks’ Distillery near Loretto, Kentucky. Sunwatch Indian Village in Dayton, Ohio. Each have earned the designation “national historic landmark” (NHL) and each – along with 2,470 other NHLs – are vying to be the star of your entry in the National Park Service’s 12th annual NHL photo contest.

“Not all national historic landmarks are battlefields, high-style architecture, or associated with the Founding Fathers,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “But all are places with extraordinary significance to our American story. Through the photo contest we invite people to explore these amazing places and to share their favorites.”

The contest, 100 Days of NHLs, begins April 22; all entries – one per landmark, up to 10 total – must be submitted by July 31. Winning entries will be featured in the National Historic Landmark 2012 Event Planner. See additional contest rules at http://www.nps.gov/history/nhl/2011photocontest/.

To find a NHL near you, search the database at http://tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/default.cfm or look at a list at http://www.nps.gov/history/nhl/designations/listsofNHLs.htm.

National historic landmarks are designated by the Secretary of the Interior because they possess exceptional value or quality in illustrating or interpreting the heritage of the United States. The National Park Service manages the program, working with citizens throughout the nation interested in nominating new landmarks and providing assistance to existing landmarks.
