The Great Scavenger Hunt Contest™ is a brand-new, super easy, totally FREE reading program for teen and youth librarians. This year-round program is open to librarians in the U.S. and Canada, in public libraries and school libraries alike. It offers fun, fast, cool programming that’ll keep your kids and teens coming back to the library for more.
Over 200 YA and middle grades authors have created a 10-question trivia challenge for one or more of their books. Trivia challenges include fun questions like “What was the color of Moe’s hideous car?” or “What is Gemma’s favorite comfort food?” (Check out the book lists in the left hand nav bar to see all of the participating titles.) Every trivia challenge also has a special note from the author to give it a personal touch. And administering the program couldn’t be easier!
To participate, readers (called hunters) simply read a participating book, complete the author trivia challenge, and turn it in to you. If they get 8 out of 10 answers correct, you get to enter them in the monthly contest. Easy, right?
Every month, I’ll choose one lucky hunter as the winner. Winning hunters will receive a $50 gift card to the bookstore of their choice to use for whatever their heart desires. Even better, when they win, YOU win too… a library prize tote filled with more terrific Great Scavenger Hunt Contest™ books for your library collection.
Fun, fast, simple plus free prizes. It doesn’t get any better than that, does it?
