HALS (Historic American Landscapes Survey)
2018 HALS Challenge: Memorialization, Commemorating the Great War
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 contest.
For the 9th annual HALS Challenge, we invite you to document a World War I memorial site to honor the centennial of the end of World War I, the war to end all wars. Not only were traditional monuments constructed across the country following the armistice, but “living memorials,” which honored the dead with schools, libraries, bridges, parks, and other public infrastructure, were designed to be both useful and symbolic at the same time. There are many other fascinating WWI commemorative sites in all 50 states.
People from every state are hereby challenged to complete at least one HALS short format history to document these beloved resources. Click here for details and a link to the short form.
31 July 2018: Submission deadline
