Charlottesville Scavenger Hunt Promotes Conflict Resolution

Posted: Updated:

You may want to keep your eyes peeled if you're walking around Charlottesville.

You have the chance to win some extra cash through the "Yo! Let It Go" scavenger hunt. The phrase is coined by Charles Alexander, reminding people dealing with conflict to just stop, walk away and let the situation go. It's another effort to reduce the violence in the city.

Forty "Yo! Let It Go" cards will be hidden around the city and the first 20 people to find them will get a $25 cash prize.

“This is an exciting, innovative way to promote safety and reduce the culture of violence in Charlottesville. It's a way to keep the momentum going and keep people talking about the importance of dealing with conflict and confrontation,” Alexander said.

Those who find the hidden cards can take them to the Carver Recreation Center to get their cash prize.

The contest starts next Thursday and runs until September 1.
