The Scavenger Hunt


To register a team for the Scavenger Hunt, please e-mail info@rcw139.org with your team name and the name of your team members!


The Aim:


The goal of the scavenger hunt is to collect as many items as possible from the list of 40 items included below. Find these items and bring them to Toronto (or find them in Toronto...?), and at the appropriate time, put them on display for our jury (which may include at least one of our very special guests), who will determine the winners. It's that simple... or is it? Creativity will definitely be rewarded! Prizes will be handed out to the winner (or winners!). Good hunting!


The Rules:


  • One point will be awarded per item (plus bonus points as applicable)
  • Contestants may enter as individuals or as a team (please register in advance by e-mailing your team name and the name of your team members to info@rcw139.org)
  • Maximum of three people per team
  • The jury reserves the right to award bonus points for authenticity, quality, creativity, originality... as they see fit!
  • The jury reserves the right to award honourable mentions
  • Please address any questions to info@rcw139.org
