Christmas Scavenger Hunt + Grand Prize

Updated on 12/5 :
Hi everyone!! Hope you're all having fun participating in the scavenger hunt :) Just an FYI, the letters go up during the week. Weekends are for resting and relaxing! ;)


If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask away!

Have a great weekend!!



Hi Gang!!
*waves enthusiastically*

It's officially December which means Christmas is right around the corner. We have recruited the help of some of our very favorite bloggers to help spread a little Christmas cheer with a new game & contest for the first 15 days of December.
Starting TODAY we'll be hosting a SCAVENGER HUNT across the blogosphere. 

Here's how it works:
  • Vanessa and I have decided on a word that will be split and scrambled.
  • Each day, starting on the 12/1, ONE blogger will feature ONE letter button on their blog for ONE day.
  • Participants will follow clues (provided by us) that will lead them to your blog to seek out the "letter of the day".
  • The chosen word is actually 11 letters...so including today, the contest will run for a total of 11 days with the help of 10 bloggers (there's 10 because we're providing the first letter =).  
  • At the end of the 11th day, the participants will have all the letters that they need to un-scramble the mystery word.
  • From there, they'll each have a ONE week to unscramble the word and submit their entry.  The form will be posted on Thursday, 12/16!
  • The entries will be thrown into a random drawing for a GRAND CHRISTMAS PRIZE consisting of autographed YA books!
Here's a quick run-through on the timeline:
The contest will officially start TODAY, Wednesday 12/1, with us hosting the first letter.  The contest will end with the final letter on Wednesday, 12/15.  Participants will have until 7:00 pm on Tuesday, 12/21 to submit their entry.  The winner will be announced on Wednesday, 12/22.  The package will ship immediately upon receipt of the winner's address so it should get there before the New Years!

Make sense?  I hope so because it's really quite simple!

Wanna know what's up for grabs?
One GRAND PRIZE containing 4 AUTOGRAPHED YA books!
{Dark Flame will come w/ matching bookmark.}


Your first letter is:
{Freebie clue: The word begins with this letter.}

Where to look:
Here is a list of the bloggers that will be participating.
Starting tomorrow, you'll need to visit each of these blogs daily to see who is hosting what letter.  Of course, these are in random order...

Rules:
  • Please leave us a comment letting us know that you'll be playing along =)
  • To enter the drawing, you must return  by 7 pm on Tuesday, 12/21 and complete the form with the unscrambled word.
  • One winner will be chosen using random.org.
  • Winner will be announced on Wednesday, 12/22.
  • Contest is open to US only {sorry to our int'l followers}
