There are three ways to participate in the centennial anniversary of the memorial with just the click of your phone.

WASHINGTON — Editor's note: The video above aired in April 2022. 

The Lincoln Memorial turned 100 this month! To celebrate its centennial birthday, the National Park Service is asking for the public's help. 

With nearly 6 million visitors annually, many Washingtonians and tourists alike have a memorable moment to share about their time at the Lincoln Memorial. A new NPS social campaign will allow you to do just that. On May 12, you can post any of your special memories at the Lincoln Memorial by using the hashtag #LincolnMemorialMoment. Whether that's a concert photo, an engagement story, a family photo, a memory of a school field trip, or just a weekend outing to take in the scenery of D.C., the hashtag was created to let people share their connections to the memorial and join the celebration of the anniversary regardless of where they are.

Individuals and organizations can also participate in the movement by replying to or commenting on the National Mall's posts (@NationalsMallNPS). 

The hashtag #LincolnMemorialMoment can be posted on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook for you to share your favorite memory.
