Panama City Beach
Scavenger hunt events include solving riddles and physical dares. The hunt consists of 20-25 challenges organized on a weekly basis for college groups of up to six students to compete against each other.
At the end of the three-week contest, the highest-scoring team gets the top prize, with two runner ups getting $2,500 each.

All events and clues will be held in Panama City Beach and only students enrolled in approved colleges and universities are eligible.
