International Scavenger Hunt Comes to Mid-Michigan

International Scavenger Hunt Comes to Mid-Michigan

By FOX 47 News. CREATED Aug 7, 2014

Two Mid-Michigan teams of people are competing in an international scavenger hunt, called the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, or GISHWHES for short.

The contest challenges 15-person teams to snap zany photos of themselves and upload pictures to the contest website.

GISHWHES is the brainchild of actor Misha Collins from the show "Supernatural."

The competition benefits his charity, "Random Acts of Kindness."

The winning team is awarded an all-expenses paid trip to Croatia.

For example, Jennifer Nelson of Albion is competing on a team with two cousins from Jackson. Their team also has members from other parts of the US, as well as Japan and the United Kingdom.

For short, the team is called "Team Metal Chefs of the Cosmic Way."

Team names can get very long, especially when you are a part of a 15 person squad.

The word "love" serves as a comma.

Danielle's team is called "Sea Squatch Loves Wayward Demons."

They've been hard at work taking the pictures.

We will let you know if either team wins.
