>The Great Scavenger Hunt Contest


Teen fiction author Kay Cassidy created The Great Scavenger Hunt Contest to provide assistance to the many wonderful libraries facing staff reductions and budget cuts in today’s tight economy. This unique, trivia-based reading program offers teen and youth librarians year-round free programming and free prizes while also promoting a wide range of YA and MG/tween fiction. Participation is 100% free for everyone – authors, librarians, and readers alike. Kay funds the entire program as part of her Giving Back campaign.

More than 150 authors are currently participating, including many New York Times bestselling authors and winners or finalists of the Newbery Medal, Printz Award, National Book Award, and Edgar Award. Since launching in April, more than 200 libraries have already registered with more joining every week. The program has been promoted by librarians at library conferences throughout the U.S. and Canada, featured on readergirlz and YPulse, and endorsed by several state library associations via a statewide announcement to all teen and youth librarians.

If you’re a librarian at a school or public library in the U.S. or Canada and are looking for ways to keep your kids and teens reading, The Great Scavenger Hunt Contest is here to help. Find out more details and register today!
