The Hunger Games Trivia Scavenger Hunt was held at the Mill Valley Public Library as a part of the First Thursday program for high school students on December 6. Junior Cate Wilmoth won first prize, choosing a Hunger Games DVD. She was followed by junior Josh Leung, who received the Hunger Games trilogy, and junior Grace Lightner won the Hunger Games soundtrack CD.

There were three rounds to the competition. The first round involved receiving clues from your team leader and finding library books to help you get the answer. The second round was an art challenge where participants had to camouflage themselves with paint to match a photograph given to them. The third and final round was a crossword puzzle with trivia questions.

“It was just kind of a good way to nerd out for two hours and ignore the fact that finals are coming up,” Wilmoth said.

Young Adult Librarian Katie MacBride organized the event. “I thought the event was really successful. It was the first scavenger hunt-type thing we have done, so it was definitely a learning experience. There are some things I would do differently next time and others that I would keep the same, but it seemed like everyone had a good time and overall I was happy with how it went,” she said.

First Thursday events will continue into next year with Joe Loya, a former bank robber turned author and comedian, on January 3.
