Treasure Hunt 2014
Welcome to ThanksUSA's ninth American history treasure hunt, which we shorthand as Treasure Hunt Nine (TH9). It's an innovative project that celebrates America's values while promoting scholarships for the kids and spouses of the military.
For newcomers to our effort, ThanksUSA stands for Treasure Hunt Aiding Needs of Kids and Spouses of those serving the United States of America. ThanksUSA began as the "brainblast" of two Virginia schoolgirls in 2005 as a non-partisan, charitable effort to mobilize Americans of all ages to "thank" our active-duty troops by providing need-based college, technical, and vocational school scholarships to their spouses and dependents.
Treasure Hunt Nine is Free ... although we hope you will make a donation to the scholarship fund for the families of our brave men and women in uniform who protect our freedoms each and every day. You can make your contribution at www.ThanksUSA.org using a secure system that protects your financial data and your privacy, or you can call 1-888-thx-usa00 (1-888-849-8720). Every contribution counts. Send your contribution to:

Welcome to the new, faster-paced format of ThanksUSA’s Treasure Hunt Nine!
This year, ThanksUSA’s Treasure Hunt will challenge your knowledge of the Bill of Rights. Treasure Hunt Nine, or TH9, will be released in six installments through our website and an updatable mobile device application (Apple app or Google Play app). Each chapter will focus on a different Amendment, having it’s own entry period and prize drawing.
All player types, individuals and school/youth groups, must submit the correct final answer of the chapter during the entry period to be eligible for prizes. Please note that we allow only one entry per chapter/per person.
The first chapter of TH9, The First Amendment, will be released on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013. Participants will have until December 31, 2013, to submit the final answer and be eligible for prizes.
Beginning on January 1, 2014, ThanksUSA will begin releasing additional chapters on a monthly basis through May. Each chapter will focus on one of the first ten Amendments and the Bill of Rights. Participants must submit the correct final answer to the chapter during its release month to be eligible for prizes.
To be eligible for the TH9 Grand Prize drawing, participants must submit correct final entries for each of the six chapters. The final Grand Prize deadline is May 31, 2014.
Even if you join TH9 late you can still revisit the previous chapters, submit correct final answers, and be eligible for the Grand Prize.
