The Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area (SdCNHA) is hosting a photo contest. Show us your Heritage Area! We would like to showcase the area through the eyes of the people who live in it. SdCNHA is committed to a future for history and heritage we want to see it through your eyes. We’d like to know: “What does Sangre de Cristo National Heritage Area mean to you?” Is it in the towns? Is it in the forest or the parks in your area? Are there people, culture, or the tiniest details in it? How do you live? Capture those vibrant moments and express what the Heritage Area means to you!

The SdCNHA is a nonprofit organization that includes more than 3000 square miles of south central Colorado. The mission of the SdCNHA is to promote, preserve, protect, and interpret its profound historical, religious, environmental, geographic, geologic, cultural, and linguistic resources. These efforts will contribute to the overall national story, engender a spirit of pride and self-reliance, and create a legacy in the Colorado counties of Alamosa, Conejos and Costilla.

SdCNHA Photo Contest will be open February 18, 2017 – March 10, 2017.
