This map will be awarded to two lucky winners of our “Picture Me Here” contest! The contest runs from May 1-June 30, 2021.
To celebrate the easing up of the Covid 19 restrictions, and to encourage visits to our passport book sites as they reopen, Missouri Civil War Passport Program is launching our “Picture Me Here” contest!
- Take a picture of yourself holding your passport book at a visit site or stamp site,* and share it in the comments section of our Facebook post with the map picture announcing this contest. There is no limit on number of entries allowed, so every picture you post gives you an additional opportunity to win. Five posts from five different sites will give you five opportunities to win!
- The picture must show something in it that identifies the location, and you must be holding up your passport book. The pictures below are good examples of how to identify a location in your picture. The people in the photos have already visited all of the sites and each has received a Certificate of Completion.
- The picture can have more than one person, and each person holding a book will get an entry into the contest. Be sure to tag each person holding a book, or write their names in the comment section, so they can be identified.
- The sites in the winning pictures will receive ten copies of the passport book for resale, so let them know you appreciate their breathing life into Missouri’s history by entering a picture in the contest.
- The contest runs from May 1 through June 30, 2021, but you have until 11:59 pm CDT on July 1 to post your photos. Two winners will be picked by random drawings on July 2. A video of the drawing will be posted at 5 PM CDT on the Facebook page. Click here to see how the drawing works.
Since one picture can qualify many for the drawing, why not rent a bus, or van, and make visiting sites a road trip for you and your friends?
Please travel safely while you are enjoying the beauty of Missouri.

*For example, in Vernon County, a marker identifies the location of the Battle of Dry Wood Creek; we consider that a visit site. The Bushwhacker Museum, where you go to get your book stamped, we consider a stamp site. You could take your picture at the visit site marker or at the stamp site museum.
