Scott McMurren and the Alaska Travelgram team are bringing together the top tours, guides, transportation and lodging companies for a week-long virtual scavenger hunt, exploring every adventure Alaska has to offer.
Top of the Leaderboard: Grand prizes will be awarded for those in the top tier of the leaderboard. Complete as many challenges as you can to be at the top of the leaderboard by the end of the week (this will often be someone working with friends/family and living in SouthCentral Alaska).
Prizes of the Day: Complete the special daily challenges to ensure you’re entered to win our prizes of the day. We’ll do a random draw from those that complete these challenges. These are often trips for two from our favorite Alaskan tour companies.
Midpacker Mayhem: We will have some other positions to vie for (to be announced) to keep things interesting in the middle of the pack.
Out of Towners: We’ll have special prizes each day for those playing from outside of the greater Anchorage area. You may not top the leaderboard but we’ve got lots for you too!
Special Mention Prize: Each day the judges will choose some of their favorite entries to recognize those that have “wowed” us.
The hunt will take place over 7 days. You will use the Eventzee app on your smartphone or tablet to track and complete challenges. From snapping photos, filming videos, to answering trivia questions about our beautiful state. Each challenge you complete gives you more chances to win!
Last chance pick up: August 28 (SteamDot at Mid-Town Mall) between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. only. We'll ALSO have a last-chance pickup in Palmer on Monday, Aug. 28 (Vagabond Blues, 9-10am). And if you still really want to play, you can! You'll just need to find us during the week to get your sticker.
