Scavenger hunt for all ages

Back by popular demand, this year's Great Archives Crawl Scavenger Hunt will be open to all ages. Once again, participants will answer questions about documents and artifacts on display at all four host locations. Students (K-12) who successfully complete the scavenger hunt will be entered to win a Chromebook (Acer Chromebook R11) sponsored by Yellow Cab of Sacramento.  One Chromebook will go to K-5 students and the other to students in grades 6-12. Hunt details and questions will be included in the passports.
An Honorary Archivist sticker will go to everyone who completes the scavenger hunt.

Yellow Cab of Sacramento has sponsored Chromebook prizes for K-5 and 6-12 grade students.
