Welcome Eat Local Challengers to the Local Food Foraging Scavenger Hunt!
The full details of the scavenger hint will be released on May 15 and the clues from each of the stops will be collectively uploaded on midnight on May 31st. Stay tuned.
Please read the hunt rules carefully and be sure to turn in all your clues and bonus points by the deadline ( TBA ). The winner will be awarded a $1000 cash prize + two nights at the luxurious French Quarter Hotel + dinner for two. May the best locavore win!
Scavenger Hunt Rules
Each Clue is worth 1 point.
Each Scavenger Hunt Sponsor will have a clue, either in the form of a question or a piece of information.
Find clues by visiting each sponsor’s website, Facebook page, Twitter account or, when applicable, their physical store or market location.
Clues will be somewhat hidden but look for the Eat Local Challenge logo or postings about the Eat Local Challenge to get your clue.
Most of the clues will be posted on each sponsor’s facebook page on June 1st.
Each Bonus Point is worth 1 point.
Scavenger Hunt Sponsors will also offer a bonus point, along with their clue. For most sponsors, details about retrieving their bonus point will be on their website, Facebook page and/or Twitter account.
Bonus points will be awarded for a variety of tasks but for many you will have to go to their office, retail store or market location and take a picture of yourself inside or with a product to prove you were there (either with a camera phone or other digital camera device). For others you will have to take a picture based on what they ask you to do for their bonus point.
Updates will be posted to the Eat Local Challenge website and on our facebook page each Friday to announce who is leading the pack of locavores on the scavenge.
All clues and bonus points will need to be collected and submitted to email@example.com. Though scavengers may have made previous submissions for leaderboard position, each registered Eat Local Challenge participant should submit one final list of clues and bonus points with the subject “FINAL Scavenger Hunt Submission for ( name of participant )“. No scavenger hunt submissions will be accepted after midnight on June 24th.
We prefer digital submissions (so we can cut down on paper waste). But you can also deliver your completed Scavenger Hunt Form with printed photos in an envelope to 1618 Oretha C. Haley, New Orleans, LA 70113. If you do not have internet access you can deliver your submission as a printed doc for the clues and printed photos for the bonus points.
In the event of a tie, a Scavenge Off, will be set into motion during the last week. Details for that will be posted at on June 25th.
