DEI Awareness Scavenger Hunt

In an effort to take advantage of the downtime parents and swimmers share between events at swim meets, the MDSI Committee (with help from the USA Swimming DEI Committee) have created a series of posters designed to be placed around a facility during a swim meet. Parents and athletes can use their smart devices to scan the QR codes on the posters and get clues to complete the scavenger hunt. All who complete the hunt can get a small prize or be entered in a drawing for a larger prize. The QR codes contain the information - families do not need to download anything and cellular data/wifi are not required.
