Explore Minnesota Tourism, in partnership with Minneapolis-based Monopoint Media, just launch a statewide scavenger hunt called “Checkpoint MN.” The project includes 10 checkpoint signs placed at iconic Minnesota winter destinations. The event is free and runs Dec. 10 through Feb. 7 with the aim to mobilize thousands of participants over the course of eight weeks with $40,000+ in prizes.
Checkpoint MN locations include two national monuments, a ski resort, a speed-skating rink, a famous ice fishing destination, and more. Their website features a map of the checkpoints, prize info., and a gallery of user photos. Participants are encouraged to use social media and the hashtag #CheckpointMN to follow the action. “Minnesota is a premier winter travel destination and we’re excited to kick off a great season with Checkpoint MN,” said John Edman, director of Explore Minnesota Tourism. “Outdoor winter activities are a great way for travelers to explore the state, and the 10 checkpoint locations will showcase the diverse winter opportunities available.”
