The third chapter of The Liberty Hunt takes on a green twist with a host of new challenges, a new arena, and a four-fold chance of clinching that grand prize. Discover. Outwit. Win.
Singapore, 5 September 2014 - The award-winning Liberty Hunt returns in its third edition with Liberty Hunt 2014: Rise of the City Guardians. The unique annual treasure hunt organised by Liberty Insurance Singapore partners the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) for the first time, and will see participants from all walks of life using everything in their physical and mental arsenal to uncover and decipher 12 cryptic clues, hidden across BCA's vast network of Green Mark buildings - all for a chance to walk away as big winners.
Held in conjunction with BCA's 15th anniversary, the Hunt was launched today by Ms Denise Phua, Mayor of Central Singapore District, at BCA's Green Building Exhibition held at Bugis+. It will run from 5 September to 4 October.
Responsibility in Sustainability
The partnership with BCA marks a new chapter for Liberty Insurance Singapore, who has consistently championed responsible living among the Singaporean community. Mr Luiz Campos, Chief Executive Officer of Liberty Insurance Singapore, says, "While we enjoy the environment we have around us, it is also our responsibility to ensure that future generations have a chance to appreciate our world's beauty and splendour. With the growing consciousness of the importance of sustainability globally, change can start right at home. BCA has a great track record as a green champion. It is the lead agency championing Singapore's green building movement, especially with BCA's Green Mark scheme and its Green Building Masterplans. Partnering them for Liberty Hunt 2014 thus presents a great opportunity for us to drive home the idea that sustainable practices constitute a big part of responsible living, and encourage Singaporeans to exercise their individual power for meaningful change in the community, environment and home."
Dr John Keung, Chief Executive Officer of BCA, says, "Over the years, BCA has seen a marked increase in the number of partners voluntarily joining our BCA Green Mark Scheme to champion the green agenda for a more sustainable Singapore. I'm heartened that through Liberty Hunt 2014, participants can also discover what they can do as an individual to contribute to a green and sustainable built environment for all, in a fun and non-intrusive way. With individuals and companies working hand in hand, I believe we will have taken a firm and decisive step towards a sustainable society, one that we are proud to call home."
Four winners to walk away with a total of S$60,000
Liberty Hunt 2014 will award four top hunters with S$60,000, divided equally among them. In addition, other cash prizes will be distributed at various milestones of the game, as well as in a lucky draw during the Finale.
For the first time, all members of the public can join in the Hunt for the first three clues for free, simply by downloading the mobile app. This is to enable more people to be introduced to Singapore's green journey.
