Searching for luck

Carlsbad High ASB organizes St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt on campus

ASB’s most recent event, the St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt, gave students two days to search for shamrocks and pots of gold hidden around campus. Along with receiving a prize for finding an item, the scavenger hunt enables students to gain a sense of competition, entertainment and accomplishment while engaging in an on-campus activity.

The scavenger hunt was organized with the intent to maintain school spirit and keep students involved with ASB activities. Though the spring semester has limited big events, even having these simple events can make a difference. Senior Iris Langen, the ASB student running the scavenger hunt, always wants to do any activities to increase school spirit.

“Near the end of the year, when there’s not as many sports games, in ASB we like to do as many little activities as we can to keep the school spirit,” Langen said. “We knew St. Patrick’s Day was coming up and we figured we’d do something small like that.”

The scavenger hunt can create a positive mindset for students. Junior Meera Mor, an ASB student running the scavenger hunt, views the hunt as a joyful experience.

“It’s a fun little activity for the whole school to represent St Patrick’s Day,” Mor said. “It gets people excited when they see a shamrock or a pot of gold.”

To increase the student’s desire to participate, those who find the hidden items will be rewarded. With a motive to partake in the activity, there was significant involvement in the scavenger hunt.

“A couple of ASB members hid 55 shamrocks and 20 pots of gold around the school and when you find them, you get a prize,” Langen said. “Most of them have been found, at least 35 shamrocks and all of the pots of gold have been found.”

ASB activities bring a sense of delight to the students who partake in them. Even having a simple event such as the hunt can make an impact on the student’s mood throughout the school day.

“It’s just a fun thing for them,” Langen said. “So it makes them excited to come to school and gives them something to look forward to.”
