Huron Historical Society’s 2021 Image Scavenger Hunt

How well do you know Huron? The Huron Historical Society wants to know. We are hosting our first ever scavenger hunt with images.

The Fall hunt will begin on September 4th and go thru Sept 24th.

This fun 3-week event will consist of participants taking selfies in front of twelve locations around the city. If selfies aren’t possible, you can have someone take your picture in front of the locations.

 **We will be unable to accept submissions until September 4. **

The Huron Historical Society’s website will display images of all 12 locations and a display will be set up at the Huron Public Library. Registration is necessary and forms are available on the society’s website. Contest winners will be announced on September 25th, with a gathering at Jim’s Pizza Box at noon.

A grand prizewinner will be drawn from all the correct entries.

Four other correct entries will be drawn for runner up prizes.
