We recently held our Golden Ticket Social Media Scavenger Hunt, which was open to Virginia Tech students. Finding the answers to the clues and submitting photos earned students points towards the grand prize: the Golden Ticket! The winner received a pair of tickets to each show of the season, plus a covetable backstage tour.
Our winner was Tiffani Ray. Congratulations, Tiffani! Take a look at how she came out on top:
This is me with the Hokie statue in the student services building
This is me in the Hahn Horticulture Gardens. I believe it it the most inspirational place on campus because it is beautiful and completely natural. It is where I go to think and relax to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature. It inspires me in so many ways. I love it!
Tiffani said she had a hard time choosing which photo to share, so she shared this one as well:
Me in front of the Center for the Arts building
Me at the Farmers Market at noon with Thomas Taurman live behind me!
Me outside of Frosty Parrot. My favorite Downtown business. Yummy Fro-Yo
Me at the Perspective Gallery in Squires where the Engram Exhibition is currently showing!
Me outside of the Odd Fellows Hall in between BWW’s and Wendy’s.
Me outside of the Lyric Theatre downtown with the Marquee in the background.
Tiffani also got three out of four Twitter trivia questions correct for bonus points. Congratulations again, Tiffani! We’ll see you at our first performance, the Philip Glass Ensemble on Friday, November 1, at 8 p.m.
Hey there, Hokies.
With the start of the school year and with everyone returning to this beautiful campus, or moving in for the first time–hi, Freshmen and transfer students!–we wanted to give you a fun way to get to know or reacquaint yourself with your home away from home.
This is where our Golden Ticket Social Media Scavenger Hunt comes in.
Are you an arts lover? How about just a finder of things? Spend some time outside while the weather is still nice, and you could win a pair of tickets to every. single. show. during our inaugural season, plus an enviable backstage tour.
Just three steps between you and your Golden Ticket:
- Read the tasks and official rules for the Golden Ticket Social Media Scavenger Hunt in the contest tab on our Facebook page.
- Officially enter the contest.
- Find all the things (or at least as many as you can)!
While you’re at it, why not share with friends? Scavenger hunting is more fun with friends anyway.
The hunt itself will kick off at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 11, and continue through 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14. Just make sure you submit your answers during that timeframe, and if you’ve got the right answers, you’ll earn points.
We’ve also got a chance at some bonus points. Follow us on Twitter—we’re @ArtsCenteratVT—and correctly answer the trivia questions we’ll post. Each correct answer will earn you an extra point.

Good luck, and happy hunting, Hokies!
