We hope you’re ready for the 2018 #StarfishSearch virtual scavenger hunt! This year, the hunt will take place from Friday, October 26th to Monday, October 29th.
What exactly is it? I’m so glad you asked! When the hunt starts, you’ll receive a list of tasks to complete, and have 84 hours to complete as many tasks as possible. Some will be about raising awareness, some will be about community service, some will be to learn more about Ecuador, and some will be just for fun or to test your creativity! You’ll earn points for each task that your team completes.
If you participated last year, you should know that this year’s hunt comes with 12 whole extra hours of fun! More hours means more items and more ability for everyone to schedule around their other commitments. There also will be a few pre-hunt tasks on the week before the hunt to help your team bond and practice working together. Points from these bonus tasks will count towards your team’s total.
Everything else will be the same as last year.

Do you have no prior experience? No problem! Here’s everything else you’ll need to know:
Who: ANYONE! Teams can range from 2 to 5 people and can be comprised of team members around the world. (You won’t need to meet up in person to complete tasks, but you’ll need to be able to communicate virtually.) If you don’t have anyone with whom to compete, tell us when you register, and we’ll place you in a team with other participants.
Prizes: Top-scoring teams will win prizes, but we’ll also award prizes for particularly creative or popular submissions. This means if you don’t want to tackle the whole list, you can still win prizes just by choosing your favorite items and doing them well! Bonus points can be earned for exceptionally well-done items.
When: The list will be published at 8 a.m. EDT on Friday, October 26th. You’ll have until 8 p.m. EDT on Monday, October 29th to complete and submit your tasks.
Where: Anywhere! You can complete the #StarfishSearch from anywhere in the world! However, someone on your team must be able to access Facebook and post pictures there for scoring purposes.
Why: To raise awareness (and funds) for the Starfish Foundation!
Cost: Each team member will need to pay $20 to play.

We also want to make sure everyone you love gets a chance to participate in this year’s search, so we’re encouraging you to start recruiting others now. Let them know how great this is as an opportunity to raise awareness of the Starfish Foundation while having fun with your friends! So, go on… Get your friends and family in on what may be the most fun they’ll have this fall!
