Howard County Library
The Great Scavenger Hunt

great scavenger hunt contest logoWe like to find cool and interesting ways to keep students motivated to read, as well as refer back to time-honored classics. Scavenger hunts have always been popular, but have your students check out our updated version. Students can answer questions about their favorite books for a chance to win a $50 gift card to a favorite bookstore.

Here’s how it works:

Visit for the list of selected titles and trivia questions.

Read any of the books.

Complete the questions for that book.

Submit answers to any Howard County Library branch.

Entries with at least eight correct answers will be submitted to the national contest for monthly drawings. This is a country-wide hunt, but students can come into any Howard County Library branch to submit entries.
