The rules

Deadline: December 15th, 2006.

NOTE: DHSeminars are popular and its best to register early for them yourself. The winners of this contest will be notified and reimbursed their full or half admission price if they have already paid for an admission!

A) All photographs must be submitted to Andy Codding, RDH by either email or regular mail.

If emailing pictures please email those to if sending them please mail to:
AndyFutureRDH Scavenger Hunt

Please ensure you have a valid email address as confirmations will be sent out. If after submitting your photographs and you don't receive a confirmation within 3 business days, please email

B) All students must be in their senior year of hygiene school and eligible to take the next scheduled national board exam.

C) There must be only 2 or 3 students in your group, and at least two members must appear in every submitted photograph. If you choose to have two members then bring along someone who can help photograph your missions or ask a bystander. If you choose to have 3 members and use a 3rd as a photographer that is fine, but remember only 2 board review admissions are being awarded so you can opt to split the full admission price for the 3rd member. If 3 are in a group, you CAN take turns being in photographs, HOWEVER 2 must appear in every picture and again, only 2 prizes will be awarded. If there are any questions concerning this please contact me.

D) All pictures must also have a clear legible sign or paper being held up in the photo saying “,” “We love”, etc…. Be creative. (hint..such as T-shirts can also be made) No exceptions will be made to having the web site name in EACH picture. Extra points for creative signs are awarded at the end of the contest (up to 25 pts)

E) Scoring - Points awarded for each category will be made by Andy Codding, RDH and his web site consultants which consist of various dental hygienists and faculty throughout the united states. . In the event there is a tie for any of the prizes, Andy will not help determine the winner. In all fairness he will just ensure the website consultants follow a point system to determine who is in what final place.

There will be between 10-15 judges made of Andy's website consultants. Each judge will take those teams tied (categorized by what place they are tied for) first and rank them based on the teams open missions and overall creativity on other missions, including signs. Then points will be awarded as follows.

First Place - 5 points
Second Place - 4 points
Third Place - 3 points
Fourth Place - 2 points
Fifth Place - 1 point

Be original, risky, creative and have fun!
