10th Birthday Photo Scavenger Hunt

Make sure to read through all rules before registering for the hunt.

RULES

To enter the scavenger hunt or submit photos, please email kerry@frontiergirls.com.   If you already registered for the hunt via Caspio, you will not lose what you have already submitted, but I am out of data for the software and need to finish up old school.  Sorry everyone!

 

The Frontier Girls 10th Birthday Scavenger Hunt is based off of GISHWHES (Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) that is run each year by Misha Collins to support the charity Random Acts (http://www.randomacts.org/). 

About Random Acts

The mission of Random Acts is to conquer the world one random act of kindness at a time. Their goal is to inspire acts of kindness around the world both big and small. They provide a vast network of caring people with the encouragement and support they need to change lives for the better.  It is their belief that:

  • Every individual can be a catalyst for positive change in the world and in his/her own life.
  • Everyone deserves to be treated with respect.
  • Each person can make a positive impact within his/her social network and community.
  • Kindness breeds kindness.
  • Being kind is fun!

 

The Frontier Girls 10th Birthday Scavenger Hunt is a points based scavenger hunt.  Completion of all challenges is not needed nor expected.   The idea is to earn as many points as possible in the time allotted.  Bonus points are assigned for items completed with creativity and amazing photography or stories so it is easier to earn more points by doing a few items really well then by completing all the items, but with poor results.  Choose your challenges wisely.  Both a winning troop and a winning Pioneer will be announced at the end of the event.

 

Submission Tips:

Submission Tip #1 – Quantity won’t win this contest alone.  Make sure you take in-focus pictures.  Make them beautiful, artistic, and excellent.  Frontier Girls will award extra points for amazing photography and creativity..  The more beautiful and extraordinary the photo, the more bonus points we will assign to it. 

Submission Tip #2 – Write a good description.  Extra bonus points may be awarded for descriptions and stories that are cleverly written.

Submission Tip #3 – Composition counts.  Pay attention to the backgrounds of your images.  Beautiful photos tend to get awarded more bonus points.

Submission Tip #4  – Have Fun.  If you are having fun, making or doing an item, odds are the results will be great.  In other words, before tackling a challenge, figure out how to make the process fun.  You will likely receive more points, the more fun you have.
