MEDINA – The Medina Area Partnership has announced the launch of its second annual Scavenger Hunt which will run until Sept. 1.

Clues are designed to encourage participants to explore various parts of the 14103 zip code with family, friends, co-workers or on their own. Each clue gets the participant one step closer to the prize.

The winner will have the opportunity to choose from a family prize pack or an adult night out prize pack, each valued at $150.

“Last year exceeded my expectations for the inaugural year,” said Tim Elliott, a member of MAP’s Events Committee and creator of the scavenger hunt clues.

“This year I’d love to see more businesses using this as a team building activity,” Elliott said. “Some of the clues really make you think.”

Clue sheets are available at the Coffee Pot Café, 114 East Center St. or online (click here). The hunt can be completed in a couple of hours or at the participant’s leisure. Participants should answer as many questions as they can and submit their forms by Sept. 1 to be entered in the prize drawing.

“Medina is rich in history and a treasure trove of unique and interesting finds,” said Ann Fisher-Bale, chair of MAP’s Events’ Committee. “This scavenger hunt will challenge participants to look for both old and new places throughout 1103.”

“Tim, Ann and the entire Events Committee did a great job putting this event together again this year,” said Scott Robinson, president of MAP. “This activity adds another layer to what a day or night out on the town can include. Visit some of your favorite shops, eat and drink at some of our incredible restaurants and then see if you can find some of the clues. This is another reason to visit Medina this summer.”
