The Great Scavenger Hunt by Kay Cassidy

kays-contest.gif Had to spread the news about the Great Scavenger Hunt contest from Kay Cassidy, which every library should get in on. Seriously! Basically, readers read a scavenger hunt book, complete the scavenger hunt, and turn it in to their librarian. If they get 8 out of 10 answers correct, the librarian then enters them in the monthly contest.

Then every month, Kay chooses one lucky winner to receive a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card, and their library wins a library prize tote filled with more amazing scavenger hunt books for the library collection.

How cool is this idea?! I made a Scavenger Hunt for Violet on the Runway (find it on this page), and I think I'm gonna make some more! I seriously love, love, love this game.

Spread the word to your libraries, people!

I going to ask my library if we can take part in this - it looks like an unbelievable idea!

What a fantastic idea! Kudos to Kay for creating & managing it, and kudos to the participating authors, like Melissa! I'll tell friends who work at libraries.

This is a positively good idea! Not that people should be bribed to read ...:-)
