MY TOWN REMEMBERS WWII PHOTO CONTEST:
Calling All Student Photographers!
The National WWII Museum is calling on you to contribute to “My Town Remembers WWII: A Collection of Memories." This continually growing online exhibit showcases how our nation’s communities acknowledge the bravery and sacrifice of the Greatest Generation.
Send in photos of your community’s WWII memorials, statues, street signs, and ceremonies that illustrate how your community honors the men and women of WWII and keeps the memory of their sacrifice alive. Your photo will be added to our interactive map showcasing each WWII memory site, and each month, one outstanding entry will be chosen to be spotlighted on our website and the photographer will receive a prize from our Museum store.
