Ubuntu Women Internet Scavenger Hunt

The Ubuntu Women Project has put together a scavenger hunt for women in our community to highlight women in technology and help encourage learning interesting trivia within our community.

All completed entries will be entered into a pool to be randomly selected for a prize. Three winners will be chosen, and they will have their choice of ONE of the following:

Submission rules are as follows:

  1. The person submitting the answers must identify as female
  2. Entrants certify that they looked for the answers themselves (it’s fine to ask for help, but the majority of the searching must be your own!)
  3. Only one submission per person (we will match up the name, city and country you provide with the location we send prizes to and only send to those which match)
  4. Only fully completed entries will be checked

Entries will be accepted until 23:59 UTC on September 13th.

The Scavenger Hunt has concluded!
