Summer photo contest announced
Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation (NSHSF) is launching a summer photo contest to highlight historical markers across the state. Contestants can submit their photos online during the months of June, July and August. Once submissions are received, a committee will vote on the top 20 photos to advance to a public voting effort.
Nebraska State Historical Society Foundation encourages fans to share each marker’s unique environment through photography. “Each marker not only has its own history, but also its own picturesque landscape to appreciate and capture,” said Leslie Fattig, NSHSF Executive Director.
The top 20 photos will be on display at the Nebraska History Museum and online where they can be voted on by fans. Awards will be given to the top three fan photos during the Nebraska State Historical Society annual meeting in October.
The summer photo contest will be used to raise awareness about the Nebraska Marker Project, an NSHSF initiative to help raise funds to repaint, repair and replace historical markers in need of maintenance.
