Sometimes when visitors come to Monroe and see this awesome facility, they leave feeling for evergreen with envy. In fact, I’d say it’s fair to say that happens quite a lot. This landmark, which is actually a group of buildings and other facilities, is located on a stretch of land that used to be the Snohomish County “Poor Farm” as far back as the 1890s. If you like fireworks shows, car races, swap meets, equine events, dog shows, or many other events that attract large numbers of people from the community, then I’ll bet you’ve visited this place at least once!
*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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
