Family Adventure Quest Offered In 2009 By Kentucky State Parks
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Kentucky State Parks will again be offering the Family Adventure Quest in 2009 and the theme has a presidential flavor.
The Family Adventure Quest – a series of challenges and quests that families complete by traveling and taking pictures across Kentucky – is focused on the bicentennial celebration of Abraham Lincoln, who was born in Kentucky in 1809.
This year’s challenges will take you and your team across the state to Kentucky State Parks and historic sites, as well as the Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site to explore and learn about our sixteenth President’s ties to Kentucky.
While some challenges will simply require seeking answers through park visits or web research, many will require use of a digital camera to show your team along your journey.
The prize for entries that answer all 25 questions correctly is an $85 gift card good at state parks. For answering 20 questions correctly, you can receive a $50 gift card.
There is a $15 registration fee, which will get you an information packet with the questions, a commemorative day pack and a $5 gift certificate to the Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site in Hodgenville.
Registration forms are available at www.parks.ky.gov (Look for the Family Adventure Quest logo) as well as photos of past year’s participants. Photos will have to be submitted in electronic format on a CD. The contest ends Dec. 1, 2009.
