Annual scavenger hunt tests creativity

The Fort St. John visitor centre will be holding their 7th annual photo scavenger hunt.

From July 17 to August 8, residents will be able to pick up a list of items to take pictures of throughout the city.

There will be 50 items on a list of which people can take pictures.

Jody Howatt, a visitor services representative, says although the list won’t be released until Saturday, past lists have asked people to take pictures of a beautiful sunset, cloud formations, a bug, and furniture in odd places.

Some other picture requests have also been somewhat more abstract, including defining gravity and a beginning and an end.

Each picture taken gets awarded points. Howatt says that participants do not have to take a picture of everything on the list to get a prize and that prizes can be awarded for different types of pictures, including the most creative picture, the most beautiful or to the individual or group with the most points awarded overall.

The contest is free for people of all ages to enter and both individuals and groups can participate.

The photo list can be obtained by going to the Fort St. John Visitor Centre on 100 St. starting July 17.
