Looking for Lincoln Photo Contest: How to Enter

Where can you find Lincoln near you? Do you see Lincoln in a statue or a plaque? Is a business or school in your area named for Lincoln? Or does the spirit of Lincoln live on in the actions of people in your community?

Submit a photo, including a description of what it shows and how it relates to Lincoln. Once approved, your contribution will appear in the public gallery!

The five best Lincoln photos will win the grand prize.
