Part of being a responsible traveler is knowing, at the very least, some basic facts about the place you plan to visit. With that in mind, and because CREST specializes in knowing, top to bottom, the destinations in which it works, we hosted a Facebook trivia contest from Feb. 26 to March 12. Here's how it worked: Every other day, at 1 p.m. EST, we posted a question on Facebook focused on a travel destination in which CREST works or has worked, and provided two answers from which to choose. Contestants were given 24 hours after each posting to choose one, and the correct answer was provided the following day, at 1:30 p.m. EST. It was a way for people to have some fun while getting acquainted with what CREST does and many of the projects in which we’re engaged.
We want to congratulate the winner, Molly Shane, who's an M.A. student in International Environmental Policy at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies! Molly, who was the only one to get all eight questions right, told us after winning: "I've followed CREST's work for some time now and really enjoyed the trivia contest -- what a fun, interactive way to engage your supporters."
Molly's prize is a one-night stay in the historic and luxurious Francis Marion Hotel in one of the United States’ premiere travel destinations, Charleston, South Carolina. We want to thank all those who participated in the contest and the Francis Marion Hotel for providing the grand prize.
