History Hunt

As part of the University IT Diversity and Inclusion program, a History Hunt has been developed to encourage employees to form teams and solve one hunt each week over four weeks.  Throughout the week of each hunt, hints will be revealed to help teams solve the hunt.  Teams will receive the maximum available points by solving the hunt before the first hint is released, and continue to receive points on a sliding scale as hints are released  (i.e., 5,3,1).  The team(s) with the most points will be the winner(s) of the History Hunt.

History Hunt Theme:
