Picture It! Photo Scavenger Hunt for Teens Week #1

Picture It! Photo Scavenger Hunt for Teens
Clue #1 - Week #1 (October 3rd-9th)

Since this is the first week of the photo scavenger hunt, I’ll give you a condensed version of a clue that leads to the landmark I’m looking for, so you should milk this for all it’s worth. The landmark in question is about 150 feet tall and almost 11 feet in diameter at its base. On March 23rd, 1944 a fire destroyed the facility (which was processing flax into linen for the war effort during World War II) that this landmark was attached to, so it is all that remains of a much larger building. Even though the rest of the building burned many years ago, this landmark remains the tallest structure in downtown Monroe.

*To participate, all you have to do is take a picture of the landmark described in this clue with your cell phone or a digital camera and email it to with the phrase “Photo Scavenger Hunt Entry” in the subject line. (Or, you could drop off an actual photo at the Monroe Library). If you don’t have a camera, it’s OK if you find a picture of the landmark on the internet and submit that picture. Entries should be submitted before midnight on Sunday of each week – a new clue will be revealed each Monday on the Monroe Library Blog and posted on the Teen Board at the library. One winner will be drawn at random from all correct entries each week and will receive a prize. One grand prize winner will be drawn at random from all contestants who have submitted a photo of the correct landmark for each of the four weeks of the contest. All landmarks will be located in Monroe, WA. Contest is open to teens between the ages of 12-18, or in grades 6-12.
