What is a County-wide Scavenger Hunt? Glad you asked! It’s the chance for you and some friends / family / co-workers to get together and have some fun searching throughout the county for a chance to win prizes. All for a good cause!

 

How to #HuntUnited:

1. First, recruit some of your favorite people to form a team (make sure you can all legally fit in one car!).

2. Register your team. Registration is just $70 per team.

3. Get fired up for the friendly competition! Teams will be sent more details prior to the event, but you can start brainstorming ideas like team costumes, decorating your scavenger hunt vehicle and sharing why you #HuntUnited.

4. Arrive at your designated starting point (which will be emailed to you in advance) by 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 29.

5. At 4 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, open your packet with your #HuntUnited Scavenger Hunt list and begin your journey! You’ll be asked to pick up items, take photos at specific locations, ask people to do fun things for your team and more. There is even a “One & Done” prize worth BIG points!
