Giveaway: Go on a Scavenger Hunt and Win TONS of Cool Prizes!


Multicultural Kid Blogs Pinterest Scavenger Hunt
Want to win some really cool multicultural prizes like a three-month subscription to Little Passports, Little Pim DVDs or some great books? Then come have an adventure with us and a bunch of our multicultural blog friends. We have joined forces to create a Pinterest Scavenger Hunt, which will run from July 15 to July 28, 2013. You will have until July 31 to submit your entry, and the drawing will take place on August 1. You could win one of four fabulous prize packages listed below!


Here’s how it works

Create a Pinterest board specifically for the contest and name the board “Multicultural Kid Blogs Pinterest Scavenger Hunt.”


Each day a new clue (or two!) will be revealed over at the Scavenger Hunt main page. Follow the clue to the blog of the day and pin the post described in the clue. (Any image from the post is fine).


TODAY’s CLUE (July 24): Find something on to read to your kids about the Muslim holiday being celebrated this month.


In the Rafflecopter below, enter the link to the Pinterest board you created for this contest. The Rafflecopter will also have lots of other ways to earn extra entries. The only required entry is the link to your Pinterest board.


Please note: You can enter the Rafflecopter at any point during the contest. Obviously your board won’t be complete until the end of the contest, but you can enter the link in the Rafflecopter before then. If your name is drawn at the end of the contest, we will check your board at that time.


The final clue will be given July 28. Participants will have until midnight Pacific time on July 31 to finalize their boards. The drawing will take place on August 1.


Winners must have pinned all of the correct posts to their board. Winners will be notified via email and must respond within 48 hours or another name will be drawn.


Good luck, explorers!
