International Student Social Media Scavenger Hunt Winner

February 20th, 2013 by Jonathan Frankel

The first International Student Social Media Scavenger Hunt was a great success. They received multiple entries and would like to congratulate the seekers who were able to solve the puzzle, but unfortunately only one individual was able to be selected as the International Student Social Media Scavenger Hunt winner and she has been chosen!

The $300 cash prize went to Melissa Atta from Italy. Melissa cleverly solved the secret phrase: Your Study Abroad Dreams Start Here.

International Student followers on Google Plus, Twitter and Facebook were able to participate in the scavenger hunt by finding a new hidden word each day from February 7th through February 12th and piecing it together to complete the secret phrase.

Although the first scavenger hunt has concluded, there will be more to come. If you would like to be our next Social Media Scavenger Hunt winner, make sure you are following us on Google Plus, Facebook and Twitter.

    On what basis Melissa has won the competition? because she submitted her answer before anyone else did?

      Hi Mehrin,

      Melissa was able to find the hidden word each day by following International Student through Twitter, Facebook and Google Plus. She then submitted her answer by the deadline and was drawn from each of the individuals who submitted the correct answer. Make sure you follow International Student through their social media outlets also so you will have the chance to be a winner!
