Kiwanis Club of Courtenay holding ‘selfie scavenger hunt’ contest

Put that television remote down and get out and about in the beautiful Comox Valley.

The Kiwanis Club of Courtenay has come up with a fabulous summer contest, giving participants a chance to win some gift cards from many Comox Valley merchants, all the while practising COVD-19 safety protocol.

For just $50, you and a “bubble friend” can enter this contest, which begins Aug. 12 and carries through to Oct. 28. All you and your bubble friend have to do is take your phone with you as you travel around the Comox Valley. Take and submit selfies of you and your bubble friend each week in response to the clues supplied in the Record newspaper that week. You have to act quickly as your selfies have to be in to us by Saturday for the judging and we can get the winner into the newspaper for publication.

One entry per week will be drawn from those received and will win a $50 gift card. Your photographic meaningful moment will be in the paper.

The grand prize winner will receive $500.

Don’t worry, everyone is eligible to take part. Join in pairs and one of you must be 19 years old. Nothing will be too hard or impossible to get a selfie. Just remember, you and your bubble friend must both be in the selfie (when possible). You can enter as often as you wish.

Join now, get in on the first week with us. It will be fun! We all need a reason to smile so get off the couch and check out what has been happening around us. Are you in? We sure hope so.

The contest entry form is on the Kiwanis website, www.kiwanisclubofcourtenaybc.com

All net profits go to the Kiwanis Club of Courtenay, to support its ongoing community initiatives.
