Teen Tech Week
Teen Tech Week Digital Scavenger Hunt!
Think your skills on the web are top notch?
Test them out by participating in our Teen Tech Week Digital Scavenger Hunt! Hunt for answers here on our website and on our social media pages! Print out your Digital Scavenger Hunt form here.
If you are printing at a Three Rivers Library location, tell a staff member you are printing the Digital Scavenger Hunt and you can print the form free of charge. Scan & e-mail your completed hunt form to firstname.lastname@example.org and you'll receive a special prize, just for participating, plus be entered into a drawing for a Kindle! If you don't have a scanner, try out the Simple Scan station at the Channahon library, or ask a staff member for help scanning at either library location! Open to teens, this contest will run until Saturday, March 15. One entry per person.
