Sturgeon Victim Services is announcing a fun, fact-filled virtual treasure hunt called POKEMON? NO! as a way to increase public awareness of the program in the Sturgeon region.
The contest is called Pokemon? No! in order to take advantage of the current craze of Pokemon Go in which one captures Pokemon characters with the intention of reaching higher levels. Sturgeon Region Victim Services wants you to capture more information about our organization and the services we provide by playing our version of the popular game.
Pokemon? No! is a series of questions about Sturgeon Victim Services which will be presented on our web page, Facebook page, newspaper ads, and at community events for the next 11 weeks. The answers to these questions are readily available by reading the information provided on these platforms or by speaking with a Sturgeon Victim Services representative. Complete contest rules will also be available in these locations and posted on our website. Participants who answer all the questions correctly will have their name entered into a draw for a cash prize of $500.
Our main goal is to educate the public about Sturgeon Victim Services and to attract volunteers who could assist us in the work we do assisting victims of crime or trauma within our community. But we also want people to have fun while competing.
The contest kicked off in Morinville Sept. 8 at the Active Living Fair.
