Participate in the annual HALS Challenge! There is a different theme for the challenge every year. For 2016, people from every state are hereby challenged to complete at least one HALS short format history to document National Register listed landscapes from your region of the country to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA). Short format histories should be submitted to HALS at the National Park Service no later than July 31, 2016. Winners will be announced during the 2016 ASLA Annual Meeting and EXPO in New Orleans.
The HALS Short Format History guidelines, brochure, and digital template may be downloaded from the HALS website. Tips on completing the short format history template and the HALS copyright release form, and information on how entries are judged, can be found on page 2 of the National Park Services’ 2016 HALS Challenge flier.
