Junior Achievement Mad River Region hosted a scavenger hunt on Oct. 4 in Madison County. Using an app, teams completed missions, answered trivia questions and took selfies while competing against rival teams for prizes.

Lisa Jackman of London and her team of family members placed first. Second place went to Robin Henry of West Liberty and her family. Finishing third was the team of London area residents Jana Edmunds, Jodi Homan, Christy Frayser and Mindy Foucht.

Proceeds from the event will help to fund financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and workforce readiness programs for local students.
