Rules for the #FindUW Social Media Scavenger Hunt
Students can play all day for their chance to win tons of Badger prizes.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO PLAY OR WIN A PRIZE. To participate, contestants must be following UW-Madison (@UWMadison), UW First Year (@UWNewStudent) and UW VIP (@UWVIP) on Twitter (twitter.com). The #FindUW Scavenger Hunt date is September 7, 2012 from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Participants must be currently enrolled UW-Madison students.
During the day of the #FindUW Scavenger Hunt, there will be a series of clues posted through Twitter by @UWMadison, @UWVIP and @UWNewstudent at designated time periods. Once a participant arrives at the physical location during the designated period, they will enter a drawing for a prize for that day’s hunt. There will be 2 grand prizes awarded and many other prizes at the end of the contest. Each time a participant finds a location, they are entered for the appropriate participation prizes as well as the grand prizes.
Additional bonus clues will also be posted through @UWMadison, @UWNewStudent and @UWVIP as well as the finduw.wisc.edu website. Participants will complete these bonus tasks as described on the website. Bonus clue winners will be contacted via Twitter and asked to supply their student @wisc.edu email address for follow-up information.
HOW TO CLAIM PRIZES: Winners will be selected in a random drawing from qualified entries received at clue locations. Winner will be notified by their wisc.edu e-mail or Twitter account 1 day after the drawing. If prize winner cannot be located within 3 days, an alternate winner will be chosen.
