Create Buckhannon names Scavenger Hunt winners

Create Buckhannon has wrapped up the third annual Christmas Scavenger Hunt, and the winners are Georgeanna Harris, Justin Robinson, Conner Brown and Ethan Cutright.

A total of 2,000 Scavenger Hunt cards were distributed to Upshur County elementary schools for children 12 and under. The Christmas Scavenger Hunt featured 12 sites at local businesses and events.

As children visited each site, they were given a sticker. When they collected nine out of 12 stickers, they returned their cards to be entered to win one of four $50 gift cards donated by Jenkins Ford.

“Create Buckhannon started this activity to add a new fun event for children as well as help get people into local businesses. Each year we do the Scavenger Hunt, we get more participation,” said Laura Meadows, Upshur County CVB executive director.
