Learning about environmental sustainability could land you a whole lot of Memorial Cup swag — including tickets to the championship game.
Thompson Rivers University is hosting a free digital scavenger hunt to encourage the public to learn about environmental sustainability while exploring Riverside Park.
The week-long contest will begin on Friday, May 26, at 2 p.m. and end on Friday, June 2, at 5 p.m.
The scavenger hunt is open to all and should take most people between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.
Players will participate in an interactive experience to complete sustainability related tasks, from answering trivia questions to sharing photos at attractions throughout the park.
Everyone who finishes the scavenger hunt will receive a 10 per cent off coupon to the TRU Bookstore and will be eligible to win the grand prize, which includes:
• Four tickets to the Memorial Cup championship game;
• A $75 gift card to the official Memorial Cup merchandise store;
• Four wristbands for admission to the pre-game entertainment venue VIP area;
• Four drink tickets;
• Four Memorial Cup VIP prize packs.
The scavenger hunt — part of TRU’s Eco Day sponsorship of the 2023 Memorial Cup — was designed by the university’s sustainability office.
To participate, contestants need to use the free Scavify app by downloading and installing Scavify from the App Store or Google Play. To enter the hunt, sign up to create a username on the app, then search for “2023 Eco Day Scavenger Hunt.”
The scavenger hunt will take place all around Riverside Park, with participants using the mobile app to complete challenges, track their progress and more.
Players who finish all 19 tasks and earn 19 points will be entered into the grand prize draw.
The winner of the Memorial Cup grand prize will be announced on Friday, June 2, at 6 p.m. at the Sustainability Expo, which will be held at the field on the east side of Riverside Park from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
