The Oneida County History Center is set to host their third annual historical selfie scavenger hunt, August 1-30th. Participants can embark upon a county or city-wide scavenger hunt and document their journey with a photo or selfie.
All ages are encouraged to participate with prizes for children age 18 and under. Participants can pick up a clue sheet and instructions at the History Center or download one online.
Choose an Oneida County or Utica-based hunt and follow the clues to historical sites, monuments, and markers around the greater Mohawk Valley. Take a selfie at each destination after learning about the location’s history. Share your adventure by posting your photos and tagging the History Center on Facebook (@OneidaCountyHistory), Instagram (@ochc_localhistory), or Twitter (@OCHCTweet). Upon completion, bring evidence of your journey to the Oneida County History Center.
The first five individuals to complete a hunt will receive a History Center membership and a gift. All entries will be entered to win the grand prize gift basket, plus children 18 and under will receive a participation prize. All entries must be submitted in person at the History Center by August 30, 2019 at 4 pm.
