From the KHC official press release, the details of the Contest:
In addition to the annual running of the Kentucky Derby, May is National Historic Preservation Month, and the goal is to highlight the many different kinds of historic places that Kentuckians feel at “home.”
Participants download the contest sign, found at www.heritage.ky.gov, or make their own; hold it in front of their favorite Old Kentucky Home; get a snapshot; then “like” the Heritage Council’s Facebook page and submit it to win – the only rule being, the site must be 50 years old or older. We want to know where the photo was taken, and why the place photographed is special. The top five photos with the most “likes” will go into a random drawing to determine the winner.
Contest period is noon April 23 through midnight (EDT) Friday, May 23. The winner will be announced during the last week of May.The photo above is of myself and colleagues of Bunch & Brock outside of the University of Kentucky's historic Spindletop Hall.
