The Great Northern Scavenger Hunt: Plug into your community!

From September 19th to October 02, solve Scavenger Hunt clues that highlight how you plug into your community in a sentence or two (or a photo for bonus entries!)  for a chance to win great weekly prizes and a $150 grand prize!

Join the Scavenger Hunt! Solve clues that ask for details about YOUR community.

Fall is a great time to live in Northern B.C.! We are still enjoying local harvests and outdoors times before we need heavy jackets – but there’s that whiff in the air of colder times to come and the joys of winter activities. With this scavenger hunt we challenge you to unplug from screens and ‘plug into your community’ by identifying items listed below. Work together with your family or friends and be sure to submit an entry each so that everyone has a chance to win!  If you solve at least 15 clues (INCLUDING bonus entries) you’ll be entered for weekly draw prizes. Answer a minimum of 20 clues and be entered to win a $150 grand prize (rules below)!
