The National Trust for Historic Preservation is offering a special program called the This Place Matters Community Challenge where individuals can vote to help preserve special historically significant places in their communities all across America.
By casting your vote you can help decide which site will receive $25,000 for preservation efforts, which is sponsored by Fireman's Fund Insurance Company.
Places as diverse as Blackjack Battlefield in Kansas that I visited this summer, and the Ohio Theatre in Madison, Indiana, where I watched movies in my teenage years are among the many locations included.
To see all the locations, learn more, and cast your own vote you can go to:
Act now because voting ends on Wednesday, September 25, 2010.
