8. Trivia question

Once you’ve collected the seven screenshots and photos listed above, head to the WFLA booth at the expo. When you get there, find a member of the staff and show them all seven photos. If you have all seven, you will then have to answer this trivia question as your final task:

What’s the name of News Channel 8’s puppy with a purpose?

If you need a hint, think of the world’s most powerful radar!


If you show a team member all seven photos from the scavenger hunt and answer the trivia question correctly, you will get a prize! Please note that prizes will only be available while supplies last and only one prize will be given per family.
