Contest runs from February 1 to April 31, 2021.
The United States Forest Service (USFS) is pleased to announce a competition to secure design concepts for a memorial to honor the victims and memorialize the history of the Saint Francis Dam Disaster. The sponsor of the competition is the Angeles National Forest, in cooperation with the St Francis Dam National Memorial Foundation (SFDMF).
The St. Francis Dam National Memorial Foundation's vision is to create a National Memorial at the site of the remnants of the St. Francis Dam in San Francisquito Canyon in Santa Clarita, California which properly honors the memories of the over 400 victims of the dam collapse on March 12, 1928, and provides a great educational experience about the second greatest disaster in California history to visitors from all over the world.
