There’s an annual scavenger hunt that takes place over the entire United States and lasts a full 24 hours!
Tricadecathlonomania, aka “Trica”, is a very unique scavenger hunt. It starts and ends at midnight, and bribing judges, finding loopholes, and cheating in general is actually encouraged!
Scavenger hunts aren’t just for kids. In fact, they were invented in the 1930s by the notorious socialite and party-hostess Elsa Maxwell, “the hostess with the mostest”. Not only were they a way to entertain her guests, they were also a good way to stimulate them intellectually.
DoSomething.org is planning their own scavenger hunt! Sign up here by July 11 and you can participate in an 11-day long scavenger hunt where you can earn scholarships, computers or a trip to LA. The whole event is to raise awareness for a bunch of good causes, so make sure to check it out!
