It’s a walk in the park this year for the 17th annual Herald-Mail Landmarks Contest. We have supplied you with 10 clues at Hagerstown City Park, off Virginia Avenue in Hagerstown. Match each clue with a structure at City Park and you might win $200. 

As in years past, this year’s clues are closeup photos of buildings or structures. All clues are visible from public paths, streets or facilities within the bounds of City Park.

Please be courteous. Do not trample on flower beds or intrude into groups using pavilions, picnic tables or other public facilities. The park is officially open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Participants must correctly identify all 10 buildings or structures as clearly and specifically as possible on the contest entry form. Name or describe the buildings or structures on the numbered entry blank on page C10 or go to www.herald-mail.com and submit your entry.

The deadline to submit contest entries is 1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 19. In case of a tie, one entry will be drawn from a hat and declared the winner.

Dress appropriately for your search, and bring water. There are public restrooms in the park and a drinking fountain. You can also find cool air and refreshment in bars and restaurants in nearby downtown Hagerstown. 

All of this year’s clues are pictured in this edition of Lifestyle. 

Rules and eligibility

The person or family that correctly locates and identifies the most Landmarks will win $200. One entry will be accepted per person. If a group enters more than one entry form, only one entry will be accepted per person in the group.

In the case of more than one entry containing the correct clues, a random drawing will be held to select the winner. 

The winner(s) must be available to be photographed Tuesday, Aug. 20. Contest answers and the champ’s name and photograph will be published Sunday, Aug. 25, in the Lifestyle section.

Anyone can enjoy searching for clues, but to be eligible to win, you must live in Washington or Frederick counties in Maryland; Franklin or Fulton counties in Pennsylvania; or Berkeley, Jefferson or Morgan counties in West Virginia.
