 Lawrence County is fortunate to have a beautiful selection of historic buildings and structures with many interesting architectural details, but most of us tend to not look closely at these sometimes obscure elements.  This contest highlights these features as well as raises funds for Lawrence County Partners for Preservation, (LCPP), a new non-profit organization established to work to preserve our historical landmarks and architecture for future generations to enjoy.

The contest was open to anyone over 12 years of age living in or outside of Lawrence County  Pennsylvania. Color, sepia, or black and white photographs were required to prominently   feature an architectural detail of an exterior or interior structure such as a  house, church, cemetery, barn, bridge, etc. over 50 years old located in Lawrence County.
