Our first two Phase I winners have been confirmed and the next deadline is approaching quickly! The deadline for Chapters 3 and 4 for school and youth group participants is Thursday, March 15th. Remember, even if you are playing as a group, students can register (with parental permission) as Phase II individual participants. Since the next deadline is less than two weeks away, let’s look at a clue from Chapter 4, America’s First Ladies:

9. Not only did she help her husband run a front-porch campaign, but this soon-to-be First Lady was the first to have the constitutional right to vote for her husband in a Presidential election. Her historic vote was cast in Marion, Ohio.

Election years provide so many teaching opportunities and so does the ThanksUSA Treasure Hunt! It may be hard to believe, but women’s suffrage is still a global issue. Just last September King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia granted women the right to vote in the next election cycle (2015). Here are a few more facts to help you solve this TH7 clue:

.

.

* American women won the right to vote in 1920

* Prior to becoming First Lady, she studied classical piano for years and had dreamt of being an internationally recognized concert pianist

* Staying true to the “front-porch campaign,” she opened the gates to the White House as a symbol of neighborliness

* When sugar prices became too high for most American households, she led a national boycott

Once you’ve found the answer, type it into the crossword puzzle to the left. When you click the “Treasure” tab above the clues, you will notice that letters have automatically transferred from your crossword. When the entire crossword is solved, you will unscramble the letters for clues to the chapter’s final treasure. As we advance further through the Treasure hunt, unlocking those final treasures become more challenging. If you ever need additional direction, please leave a comment or send me a direct email at sherrykoch@thanksusa.org so I can help you complete the hunt. We want to challenge participants, but we also want you to have fun and be eligible for prizes!
