ThanksUSA Treasure Hunt

https://i0.wp.com/www.thanksusa.org/common/images/hunt13/hunt-cover.pngA fun game, interesting trivia about America, practice with internet searches, prizes to win… AND a chance to help military families? Yes, please!

ThanksUSA is a non-partisan, charitable effort to mobilize Americans of all ages to “thank” the men and women of the United States armed forces. They’re doing that by providing need-based college, technical and vocational school scholarships for their children and spouses.

ThanksUSA offers two interconnected programs: The national treasure hunt and the military family scholarship program. The treasure hunt raises awareness, excitement and funds for the scholarship program in an educational, family-friendly way. And the scholarships are an invaluable way to “thank” our troops with the gift of education.

2012 is the 8th annual Treasure Hunt, and they’ve introduced some fun new twists on the game. First, the Chapters are available both on the website and on mobile apps, so you can play wherever you are. Second, rather than one very long Hunt, each Chapter is self-contained this year, with it’s own deadline and it’s own prizes. More chances to win! Submit correct entries to each of the six Chapters, and you are eligible for the Grand Prize drawing.

The deadline for Chapter 1 is December 31, so get playing now!
