From high fiving a principal to killing cockroaches, Student Senate’s #HornetHunt2k17 challenge was seen all over campus and on Twitter. Student Senate, @bryantstusen, began by tweeting out daily challenges for students to tweet a picture or video of them completing the challenge in the hopes of gaining the most points to win the project’s awards at the end of the week.

“It has gotten a lot of people involved,” Student Senate president Sarah Brady said. “That is one of the things Student Senate really wants to do. The scavenger hunt was to bring kids that don’t usually participate to participate. Obviously, there are more active students in it, but I have seen underclassmen and other people involved.”

Every month, Student Senate’s four committees for school, faculty, spirit and community meet and are challenged to come up with ways to be involved. The school committee’s project was chosen as part of Student Senate’s involvement to boost morale within the entire school in the spring because of the lack of student participation days, like spirit week, in the fall. The school committee includes Student Senate officer senior Haylee Halter, seniors Avery Humphreys and Tanner Caton, and  juniors Lauren Hart, Gracen Goudy and Matthew Sandidge.

“It’s something that is kinda fun for the student body,” Halter said. “It’s that time of year where things just start heading downhill really fast, especially for seniors, so it was just something to get people involved and talk and get it spread throughout the school.”

Although Student Senate members were encouraged to participate, they were not able to have a chance at winning the prizes at the end of the week.

“It went a lot better than I thought,” Sandidge said. “I didn’t think people would get that creative with it, but a lot of them have been really fun and creative.”

Although much of the scavenger hunt was aimed toward student participation, it also helped with  student-teacher connections.

“[The scavenger hunt] makes students talk to their teachers more and show kindness to them,” Sandidge said. “A lot of the times we don’t really show how much we appreciate teachers and what they do.”
The winners were announced Jan. 30 as follows:
First place: Freshman Jewell Regan
Second place: Sophomore Chloe McGhee
Third place: Junior Amber Edwards

The winners were contacted via twitter by Student Senate in order for them to obtain their prizes.
