Bring on spring 🌼 and get fired up 🔥 for some safe & friendly competition!  Team up and start exploring sustainable practices in your neighborhood. 🏘🌳 Complete as many missions as you can for the chance to win prizes and awards! 🥇

Built Environment Plus is bringing the community together and celebrating the arrival of spring with a fun competition to get people out and about safely with your bubble. A digital Scavenger Hunt powered by goosechase* will allow teams of 4, or larger for families, to complete a series of photo, video, and text based missions to gain points within a two week period. The game is self paced, with the exception of 7 missions that are aligned with days of the week, like Transit Thursday! Complete as many missions from the list as you can. The team with the most points at the end wins. You do not need to complete all missions to win. In the case of a tie, the quality of submissions will be judged to determine the winner.

The hunt starts on April 14th with a Kickoff Event that evening. Registration and team creation will be live throughout the duration of the two week runtime, so you can join in at anytime. At conclusion, we will come together for a celebration event the evening of April 29th to congratulate the winner of the Scavenger Hunt and give out some prizes. There may even be some awards for the best submissions… 😉

😷 COVID Protocol

All missions in the scavenger hunt are designed to be completed in accordance with COVID-19 safety guidelines. All missions can either be completed outdoors or inside your household. All outdoor missions must be completed with a mask covering both nose and mouth while observing social distancing. Failure to do so will result in point penalties.

Built Environment Plus assumes no responsibility for any illnesses contracted or injuries suffered by participants.

 

👊 Teamwork

A wise woman once said: “teamwork makes the dreamwork”. In the BE+ Sustainability Scavenger Hunt, teamwork and communication will be key. Below are some teamwork tips and information:

  • Teams are limited to 4 Adults 18yrs or older, children not limited. Teams sizes of 1 to 3 are allowed.
  • Team prizes will be awarded to each team member.
  • Teams do not need to meet in person, though they will need to decide on some form of remote communication. We strongly encourage you to avoid email and instead use instant messaging platforms.
  • You will have 3 options for deciding your teammates:
    1. Join a team created by another player through the goosechase app.
    2. Create a team for others to join through the goosechase app.
    3. Request a team assignment from a BE+ administrator.
  • Missions can only be completed once per team. Missions will disappear from the to-do list for the entire team after one member of the team completes it.
  • Teams will receive the same number of points per mission, regardless of how many teammates involved.
  • After the mission list is published, draft a rough plan with your team of which missions will be completed by whom.
  • Update your team when you complete a mission to avoid repeating missions.

🎫 Ready to Join In?!

You can register and join in as an individual or as a group. We encourage people to form teams before signing up so that you already have a means of communicating. We imagine this will be a hit with you and your family, and so the only limit to team size is a maximum of 4 individuals age 18 years or older. There does need to be at least 1 adult 18 years or older in the team.
