The FIJI Water Urban Hunt is set to take over Chicago on August 14. It’s a “social media scavenger hunt” based around foursquare checkins and posts to Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube.
Fifty teams of two will travel by foot and public transit around Chicago to hunt down locations and objects from featured businesses. They’ll check in on foursquare when they get to each location and receive extra points if they post the checkins to Twitter and Facebook or add a tip at the venue. More points are available by posting photos to Twitter and Facebook and by completing video challenges with posts on Youtube. Bonus points are available throughout the day for “enthusiasm and creativity.”
The teams will be playing for prizes including iPads, hotel stays, FIJI Water delivery service (of course), travel vouchers and White Sox tickets. After the race, all the teams will get together for an after-party and awards ceremony at SushiSamba.
â€œAlong with an afternoon of fun, the scavenger hunt is designed to raise awareness of all the fantastic places to dine, visit and shop in the downtown Chicago area and further build an online presence for those businesses,â€ said Leyla Arsan, founder of the FIJI Water Urban Hunt.
If you’re in Chicago (and meet the stringent requirements for both Twitter followers and Facebook friends) you can apply online.
