ThanksUSA Treasure Hunt Chooses 'Bill of Rights' Theme

November 26, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

ThanksUSA and the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) Foundation announced the launch of the ninth annual ThanksUSA Treasure Hunt (TH9), a free, fully interactive digital trivia and puzzle game about U.S. history, culture and values. The annual hunt supports ThanksUSA's annual scholarship fund to benefit the children and spouses of active-duty military personnel by providing scholarships for two-year or four-year colleges, vocational or technical schools. The focus of this year's hunt will be the Bill of Rights.

The digital trivia game will be assessable starting Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28. Participants will be quizzed on the Bill of Rights' history, purpose and implications on American life. It is the first of six Treasure Hunt chapters available for free online www.thanksusa.org and via mobile.

"Treasure Hunt 9 promises to be one of our most challenging contests ever, engaging students and their families across the country while reminding them of the sacrifices of our troops," said ThanksUSA Executive Director Michele Stork. "The ESA Foundation's continued support for the contest and scholarships will help ThanksUSA cross the $10 million mark in scholarships."

"The U.S. video game industry is proud to support our nation's troops and their families," said Jenny Lai, vice president of the ESA Foundation. "We are proud to help educate children through the use of digital technology and bring our unique and impactful resources to augment ThanksUSA's remarkable mission and work."

Following the official launch of Treasure Hunt Nine on Nov. 28, new chapters will be introduced on the first of each month beginning Jan. 1, 2014. The six-month Bill of Rights challenge will close on May 31, 2014, and will be followed by a summer bonus round slated for July 4 – August 15, 2014.

Four players who correctly answer each chapter's questions will each receive a $250 Walmart gift certificate. A grand prize – a $500 Walmart gift card – will be drawn from the pool of individuals who correctly answer all questions in each round.

Re: ThanksUSA Treasure Hunt Chooses 'Bill of Rights' Theme

I am a big fan of the 5th amendment. It gets bent (but mostly broken) all the time and people should learn about the 5th and invoke it.

 

The 5th protects you from unlawful search and seizure, and gives you the right not to answers questions from the athorities.

I may be crazy, but I am not insane.

The Fourth Amendment protects you from unlawful searches and seizures. The Fifth Amendment protects you from double jeopardy and from being forced to incriminate yourself. The Fifth Amendment also is meant to be a  check on the eminent domain and civil and criminal forfeiture by the government.
