Think you know the Windy City? Put your knowledge to the test and compete in the eATLAS ScavHunt 2024 for your shot to win cash prizes totaling $5,000. This year’s unique theme is CHIstory (pronounced “SHY-story”) where you’ll draw upon knowledge of all things Chicago, including history, inventions, architecture, sports, food and music.
Home to innovators and inventions, the history of Chicago is the history of the future. From its incorporation in 1837 through its emergence at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition to today’s status as one of the world’s great cities, Chicago has seen it all. Players will traverse through the Loop and River North neighborhoods to the locations of landmarks that have been etched into the city’s fabric.

$500 will be awarded to the participating team or individual member, up to a total of $2500/team. Additional prizes will be given to ScavSquads for the best Costume, Team Name, Spirit, and Social Media Influencer using the hashtags #CHIstory and #chiscavhunt. The winning team will also take home the 2024 trophy!

Create your own “ScavSquad” of 1 to 5 players or register to compete on your own by clicking this link from your phone:

Players must correctly complete each CHIstory requirement—as quickly and correctly as possible—to win. You may stop and start the ScavHunt anytime, just complete it anytime between Friday, May 31st at 10 a.m. and Sunday, June 2nd at 9 p.m. The winning team or individual will have the best time and most accurately completed challenges. It’s estimated to take between 2-3 hours to complete, depending on your ScavHunt skills.

Mark your calendar for May 31st-June 2nd. Good luck ScavHunting!
