Scavenger Hunt for All Ages

Yellow Cab of Sacramento will once again be sponsoring this year's Archives Crawl History Scavenger Hunt. Open to all ages, participants will answer questions about documents and artifacts on display at all four host locations. All who successfully complete the scavenger hunt will be entered into a drawing with a chance to win a Samsung Tab 4 Nook. Three Nooks will go to K-5 grade students, three to 6-12 grade students, and three to adult participants. Hunt details and questions will be included in the passports the day of the event. Thank you, Yellow Cab of Sacramento!

Yellow Cab will be awarding nine Samsung Tab 4 Nooks.
