Earn Prizes Exploring Democracy in Community Treasure Hunt at LSC-CyFair
CYPRESS, Texas (Sept. 6, 2022) All ages are welcome to participate in the Democracy Rocks Treasure Hunt during Celebrate Freedom Week and Constitution Day in September at Lone Star College-CyFair.
The treasure hunt is designed to help Cy-Fair residents to understand eight important lessons about democracy and to encourage participation in the upcoming Nov. 8 elections.
“We are excited to partner with the League of Women Voters Cy-Fair and the LSC-CyFair Political Science Club to co-sponsor this activity as a fun way to teach a few lessons about democracy and our right to vote,” said Librarian Regina Vitolo.
LSC-CyFair’s students can participate in the treasure hunt throughout the day Sept. 14 and Sept. 15, while the hunt for community residents from pre-k to age 18 will be held between 10 a.m. and 2 pm. on Constitution Day, Saturday, Sept. 17.
Participants will pick up a log sheet in the library and a treasure map to locate eight treasure hunt art installations around the Barker Cypress campus. Each installation has a Democracy Rocks Civics Tag containing a fill-in-the-blank democracy message. Participants returning completed log sheets with the missing word(s) found on the back of the tags will be entered to win prizes.
