End your poverty and depression by winning the Great Virtual Scavenger Hunt in the Triumph Over Tragedy project
The goal of the Great Virtual Scavenger Hunt, says Julia Foley, is to engage participants in questions that pertain to historical venues photographed for Triumph Over Tragedy, the book and film, The Grapes of Wrath, video and audio clips from elders who have shared their stories, hobo signs, and information concerning the 150 events taking place through April 2010 related to the project through exploring the Eye20CreativeCorridor.com website.
Weekly clues are included in the Triumph Newsletter. Sign up for the newsletter on the Eye20CreativeCorridor.com website.
To participate in the Hunt, you must be at least 13 years of age and reside in one of the participating 21 Parishes of North Louisiana. After completing the questions, there is a chance to win one of the following:
• A first place $2,000 cash prize. Happy days are here again!
• A second* place receives lunch for 4 at the cafe@artspace in Shreveport.
• A third place* prize of a free tour for two of Barksdale Field Historic District and lunch at the Barksdale Club.
• A Runner Upper Parish will get two free passes to an arts event in their parish or any other parish.
Winners of the prizes will be selected based on the participant that filled out the highest percentage of correct answers. In the result of a tie (i.e. 5 100% correct answer ballets) the winner will be chosen randomly from among those in the tie.
Winners will be announced on the website and via email alert on December 1, 2009. For information on rules and to sign up to play, go to the Eye20CreativeCorridor.com website.
