Participating in the YA Scavenger Hunt is easy! We have a "How To Hunt" page with an orientation video for you.
Here's all you have to do:
The hunt opens officially at noon Pacific Time--all posts by authors should be up then.
During that time, you can go to the participating authors blogs and websites--you can find them all here. The first thing on the page should be their hunt information--there you can find out about new authors and get exclusive content.
Take note of the highlighted number on each author's hunt page. You need that number to enter the contest!
Each author is on either the RED, ORANGE, GOLD, GREEN, TEAL, BLUE, PURPLE, or PINK Team. Add up the numbers of all the authors on the red team, and you have the secret code you need to enter the contest for the red team--then do the same for the blue, etc! You can find the prizes for each team here. You can only enter once, and your entry only counts if you have the right number, so make sure you get the right code! Break out those calculators!
You have to submit your entry by October 4, noon, Pacific Standard Time. You can submit your entry for each team HERE.
On October 9th, we'll announce the winners! There's one winner for each team. The hunt IS open internationally, to all ages, so you have no excuse to not join in the fun!
Still have questions? Post them in the comments here and we'll do our best to answer them as soon as possible.
Also? We need your help! If you like the Hunt, please help spread the word. We can only do the Hunt when our readers tell us they want it, so please--spread the word about the Hunt!
A quick note as we kick off the celebration:
The Hunt doesn't officially begin until noon, Pacific Standard Time.
This is 3pm Eastern Standard Time.
While some authors will have their material up prior to this time,
not all materials in the Hunt will be up until this time.
