    Why is the United States ignored? We have a little bit of history and a few monuments. How about the Statue of Liberty and the Viet Nam Wall? There are more.

      Hi Rhonda, countries ‘participate’ when a local team organises a contest – it is not a choice by an international team. In the US, the competition has been organised in the past, but in this year, the local organisers have chosen to focus their effort on another project. After all, Wiki Loves Monuments is organised by volunteers primarily.
