Discover Newtown by Surfin' NBA in this Virtual Scavenger Hunt!
Calling all mystery hunters, scavengers, puzzle solvers & prize seekers - get ready for the a virtual scavenger hunt! Best part? All you need is a social media profile! Contestants must be age 13 years or older.
Check out our NBA Facebook event page and Instagram!
The overall mission of the Surfin’ NBA Virtual Scavenger Hunt is to help continue building businesses by generating online “interactions” for NBA members and help connect them with potential customers; foster friendships by providing a fun, yet competitive way for “contestants” to interact with each other while competing for prizes; and to connect community by educating the general public to the status, news, and promotional offerings of the “Destination” NBA businesses.
When the week-long, virtual competition begins, contestants will receive a list of “interactions" to complete and will be awarded points for each interaction. They will have a week to visit various “Destination” pages in order to complete as many interactions as possible. At the end of the week-long contest, a live stream award ceremony will be held on Facebook where the contestant with the most points will be awarded prizes, gift cards, etc! This contest is sponsored solely by the Newtown Business Association and is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with Facebook, Instagram or any other social media platform.
