scouts have completed this objective as of 

7/26

 

Objective:

Create index card art by responding to the provided prompt!

Details:

This micro objective is part of our "Index Card Art" series. The concept is simple. Follow the art prompt and create art using a 4x6 or 5x7 index card as your canvas. We chose index cards for two reasons. First, index cards are cheap and readily available. We don't expect that it will be difficult for any of you to procure an index card. Second, many who don't consider themselves "artists" tend to stress out about creating or sharing art. Using an index card instead of a sketch book lends itself to silliness. Have fun with the prompt! We're not looking for perfection, just a good time. You can save your index cards and look back at them over time, or throw them away. The choice is up to you!

1) Gather your supplies. You'll need an index card (4x6 or 5x7) and a set of markers. (Sharpies are our fave at Quest Scouts Central.)

2) Interpret the prompt below to make your index card art.

Prompt:

It's time for the show! (The GAME SHOW, that is!)

 

3) Share your favorite photo of your index card art on Instagram or Twitter with the tags #QuestScouts and #IndexCardArt. You can also share your experiences in our Facebook group.

(Remember that all posts tagged with #QuestScouts posted on a non-private Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account will show up on our Scout Board.

4) Comment below stating that you completed the objective so we can be sure to count you toward our goal of 27. For this objective, you are encouraged to lead friends and family members in thier own index card art. You may comment below on their behalf if you make sure to share their art with us beforehand. (Please don't submit more than one of your own pieces of art... It's against the spirit of the participation goal.)

Micro Objective:

Play a round of hodge podge trivia.

Details:

Trivia. It's everywhere! Your mission for this micro objective is to borrow a piece of trivia and share it with the Quest Scouts community. Then, answer someone else's piece of trivia!

1) Locate an interesting trivia source. The more interesting the source the better! 

***Optional BONUS CHALLENGE!*** Use a piece of NON-ONLINE media to locate your trivia. 
Examples of non-online sources include- Board games, page a day calendars, dinner time tv game shows. Make it more interesting than a simple Google search!

2) Post your newly found trivia question in our Facebook Group.
Make sure to cite the source you used! 

3) Give your best answer to somebody else's trivia question! Check out questions others have posted and guess the answer. 

***IMPORTANT: Please don't spoil the fun by googling the answer.***

4) Let them guess! Now that your trivia has been published, it's time to give your fellow scouts a while to answer. Even if the question is answered correctly right away, it is still fun to give others a chance to concur, or pose their own answer. 

Set a timer to remind yourself to check on your trivia question. We suggest 8 hours, but this is 100% up to you! (You could do 1 hour or 24!) When the timer is up,

5) Check in on your trivia question. If the question has been answered correctly, announce it! If the question has not been answered correctly, let the guessers (if any) know that. You may also want to give a hint at this point! Reset your timer, and repeat the process until you've received a correct answer.

6) This objective will be considered complete when 19 people have posted trivia questions AND all 19 trivia questions have been correctly answered.

This objective is complete as of

5/11

 

Objective:

Take a walk of fate!

Details:

1) Gather your materials! You will need:

-A "Walk of Fate" worksheet
-A six sided dice
-A pen or pencil

2) Roll your fate!

Roll your die, and record your roll on  the "Walk of Fate worksheet" by shading in the corresponding arrow. For example, if you roll a two on your first roll, you'll shade in the "left" arrow, in the left column. If you roll a five on your second row, you'll shade in the "forward" arrow, in the right column.

When you've rolled the die 15 times, your walk of fate "map" in complete!

3) Head out on a walk!

Choose a starting point. Note your first direction, and begin walking that way. While walking, look for an opportunity to head in your second noted direction. (City blocks will most likely be a convenient grid to follow here.)

Notes: Use common sense! Don't do anything dangerous! If you hit something insurmountable, modify your walk until you can continue on your path.

4) Continue on your walk, following your walk of fate, until you've finished your entire walk of fate. (All 15 directions should have been followed at this point.)

5) Take a photo to document where you ended up! Share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. You can also share your photo in our Facebook group.

6) Comment below telling us about your walk of fate. How did it go? Did you enjoy yourself? Did you run into any issues? Your comment will be counted toward our goal of 20 participants of this objective.

3) Take a photo to document your experience. Share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tag #QuestScouts. You can also share your photo in our Facebook group.

(Remember that all posts tagged with #QuestScouts posted on a non-private Twitter or Instagram account will show up on our Scout Board.)

Objective:

Participate in our scavenger hunt for a city or state welcome sign!

Details:

1) It's time for a scavenger hunt! This objective requires a field trip to a local (or not so local) city or state welcome sign. You're also welcome to choose an iconic sign whose main purpose is to display the city name. Examples would include the Hollywood sign or the Chicago Theatre sign. (You know what we're looking for here!) 

2) Take a photograph that includes both the city/state sign AND a sign that says Quest Scouts on it! You can hand write the sign yourself, print one at home, or use one of our pre-printed 5x7 cards made specifically for our hunts. 

The Nitty Gritty: (a) We will not be counting submissions that do not have the Quest Scouts sign. (b) Industrial/highway signs that don't say "welcome" will will not be counted. (c) The sign should be a permanently erected sign. (d) Make sure to choose a location that has yet to be represented. See 5 for more details.

3) Share your photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tags #QuestScouts. You can also share your photo in our Facebook group.

(Remember that all posts tagged with #QuestScouts posted on a non-private Twitter, Instagram or Facebook account will show up on our Scout Board.

If your Instagram or Twitter account is private, please make sure to post in our Facebook Group to be counted toward this objective. (Otherwise we won't be able to see it.)

4) Comment below and let us know that you completed this objective, as well as where you posted your photo and what location your photo depicts.

5) IMPORTANT: For this objective, our goal is not to hit 33 participants, but rather 33 locations. Locations should be either countries, cities or states. (Or, if not in the US, their foreign equivalent. Don't want to exclude provinces and such!!!) A city within a previously represented state counts as it's own entity. Scouts may submit as many locations as they please, each of which will count toward our goal unless they have been previously represented.
