Up to 1,000 BYU students will spend their Saturday afternoon hunting down clues and completing challenges on campus in hopes of winning a GoPro.
BYUSA is hosting the GoProvo scavenger hunt on Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015. The lead organizer Summer Moffat said the scavenger hunt will help students connect with and learn more about the BYU campus.
“This is a great opportunity for students to get better involved with their campus and to celebrate BYU,” Moffat said.
Students don’t need a car to participate, she said, but the scavenger hunt will require teams to cross the campus from one end all the way to the other.
“We chose specific places on campus that we thought were important, like museums, and also random places that are totally unexpected,” Moffat said. “We took what we loved about BYU and made that into our challenges.”
Each challenge on the list will be worth a point value depending on its level of difficulty. The teams will tally their own points, but need to document each challenge they complete on Instagram.
Moffat said it will take dedication to take first place.
“The teams have to want it if they want to win,” Moffat said. “It’s debatable if they can complete all the challenges in the six-hour time frame, but it’ll definitely open their eyes to things on campus that they didn’t know existed.”
BYUSA is providing a GoPro to each student on the winning team, and Moffat said there will be prizes for the teams who take second and third place as well.
There will also be a dance for all participants in the Smith Fieldhouse after the scavenger hunt ends.
Students can compete in the scavenger hunt in teams of two to six people. Each team member needs to pay a $3 fee to register, and students can sign up on eventtickets.byu.edu. BYUSA is encouraging students to sign up as soon as possible because the scavenger hunt has a 1,000-participant limit.
