SEMC Scavenger Hunt/Your First Mission
Written By SEMC

Join us In Charleston, South Carolina IN 2019! Don't forget to save the dates and mark your calendars for SEMC 2019, October 21-23!

Your First Mission

Welcome to SEMC! We hope you are excited to spend three days learning, growing, networking and most importantly, having fun! For some additional fun, we have put together a scavenger hunt that will explore the different parts of the conference while learning a bit more about the host city of Charleston.

How to Participate

Follow along with this scavenger hunt throughout the conference. It will take you from one location to the next. At each location you will receive a task - the task will help you unlock the next clue. (See an example of a clue you need to unlock below.)

Complete the scavenger hunt to be entered into the prize raffle. You’ll get entries for partial completion too - see “checkpoints” below.

Unlocking Clues

Step 1: Type in the answer that you learned in the previous post.

Step 2: Once you have unlocked the content, read carefully to learn more about the next location.

Step 3: After learning about the location, you will complete a challenge that will guide your answer to the next question.


The farther you get into the scavenger hunt, the more entries you get in the raffle. You can share your progress with us with checkpoints. When you reach a checkpoint (see image below) make sure to click “SUBMIT CHECKPOINT”. It will open up a blank email - and all you need to do is send it! (We use your email address to keep track of your checkpoints.)

Bonus Points

Along the way, you can earn bonus points by sharing your progress and pictures on Facebook. We’ll tell you in the app when you can earn bonus points. Use #semc2019 and tag @VAMONDE.

Scoring and Prizes

Each checkpoint and social media share (bonus point) earns you a ticket in the raffle. Once the conference is over we will draw 2 winners. Each winner receives a $25 Gift Card to Barnes and Noble.

How do I find the answers?

The scavenger hunt questions and riddles pull from information located at the conference and within the SEMC mobile guide. Explore the information listed in the scavenger hunt and the different sections of SEMC (itineraries, exhibitors, experiences etc.) to answer the question to unlock each new location.
