Gather ye smartest phones, prepare thy hashtags! The second annual Emerging Professionals Scavenger Hunt at Greenbuild is set for Tuesday, November 19 in Philadelphia.

Teams of four will assemble and take off from the Philadelphia Convention Center to explore green landmarks, sustainability-features, architectural design, and urban planning strategies across the City.  

Four different challenging routes have been created highlighting Philadelphia’s commitment to a prosperous and sustainable future. Your task will be to explore these pre-determined sites, take a picture, submit the image, and attempt any optional extra credit offered at your location. All sites are within walking distance of the Convention Center (approximately 1 - 4 miles). The team with the most pictures and points wins a fantastic prize worth up to $200, plus bragging rights.

Other benefits include:

  • It’s free to register and participate in the hunt
  • Explore vibrant center-city neighborhoods committed to responsible design and development in Philadelphia
  • Connect with young professionals from across the globe
  • A grand prize of up to $200 will be presented to the winning team, with a few smaller awards for creativity and participation
  • The first 100 people to register get a free ticket (with food and drinks) to the sought after USGBC Chapter Leader Recognition Party that night (details will be emailed).
