Scott McMurren and Alaska Travelgram 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. The 2021 Quest was a huge success and we are excited to bring back this exciting event once again!
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 a team).
49th Position: Grand prize for the team (or Party of One) in the 49th position. We love our mid-packers! If there is a tie for 49th position, the prize will be awarded by random draw.
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. We’ll have several each day to ensure you’ve got lots of chances to win.
Party of One: We know it’s harder to get to the top of the leaderboard when you’re playing on your own so we’ll have prizes each day for those competing as individuals.
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’ll be using our handy app, Goosechase, on your smartphone or tablet to track your missions. From snapping photos, filming videos, to answering trivia questions about our beautiful state. Each challenge you complete gives you more chances to win! Every task completed is an entry.
