Military Family Scholarships  
by   garrett17od

Treasure hunts are typical the rage, from Disney's struck video, 'National Treasure,' to NBC's new present, 'Treasure Hunters.' That summer, everyone can take part in a treasure hunt and earn to be able to win awards while donating to your cause: educational scholarships for your partners and children of U.S. soldiers.

A need to thank the-troops motivated Rachel and Kelsi Okun, siblings from McLean, Va., to create ThanksUSA, a nationwide treasure hunt to gain military people. On the list of awards are a Harley-Davidson motorcycle; a big-screen home-theater system; and trips towards the 2007 Super Bowl, the London, Daytona 500 and Cairo, Egypt. All gifts were given by sponsors.

The Okuns' virtual treasure search contains 12 'chapters,' that are posted online in-a clue book. Each page tests members' familiarity with American history, common tradition, geography and trivia related to a specific state. Those who properly answer the questions in each chapter are eligible to get a prize.

Participants who successfully answer all 1-2 phases are eligible to win the $100,000 great prize offer including a Washington, D.C., venture to find a treasure chest stuffed with rare gems, jewelry and centuries-old coins.

ThanksUSA is small for 'Treasure Hunt Aiding Needs of Kids (and spouses) of these Serving the United States of America.' The hunt is open to any U.S. citizen and lasts through Sept. 5.

'The least we could do for those heroes-of America is to support their children and spouses have a better future since they are helping all of the U.S.'s spouses and children have better futures, too,' writes Rachel, 10, in an article explaining the way the idea found fruition.

Rachel and Kelsi created the idea after reading Michael Stadther's guide, 'A Treasure's Trove.' The sisters created ThanksUSA's brand and helped with re-search for the questions. The indicators were a collaborative effort among a teacher, their parents, the ladies and other volunteers. Be taught further on the affiliated encyclopedia - Click here: details.

'We wanted to express gratitude to the soldiers and wanted to show that we worry about them,' says 8-year-old Kelsi..
