Great Scituate Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, April 2, 12pm-8pm
The Great Scituate Scavenger Hunt is a non-traditional fundraiser that will benefit the Scituate Fire Department as well as many other local organizations. Teams of four will attempt to complete as many challenges as possible with the goal of scoring the highest point total. Each challenge is assigned a point value based on difficulty. The tasks with the highest point values will involve an act of community service benefiting a local charitable organization, ie. the Scituate Food Pantry. Teams will document each challenge using a digital camera and are responsible for uploading their images by the designated end time. At the end of the scavenger hunt, a panel of judges will tally the points and determine a winner. Each member of the winning team will win a 16GB iPad. These iPads have been graciously donated for this event by local business owners. Scituate High School students can earn 8 hours of community service for participating in this event.
