Passport Scavenger Hunt Contest

We will ask three daily questions to help you learn more about USAC, our programs, and how to get started on your study abroad journey. To find the answer to these questions, you will need to explore our website, attend USAC Week events, and engage with our digital study abroad resources to collect passport stamps through a fun and interactive scavenger hunt. The more stamps you collect the higher your chances are for winning prizes.

We have provided the list of daily questions below to help you prepare. Each day, you can find a submission form below where you will provide your answers. Submission forms will be available at 12 a.m. daily and need to be submitted within 24 hours. Entries submitted after this time will not be counted.

The Passport Scavenger Hunt contest begins Feb. 16 at 12 a.m. PST and ends Feb. 20 at 11:59 p.m. PST. See contest Official Rules for more details.
