(Columbia, SC) –Soda City Certified® (SCC), Columbia’s only mobile application that aims to help residents and visitors explore our Capitol City, will launch a free African American history scavenger hunt during the month of February for all app users. Twenty-eight sites will be featured from Historic Columbia’s African American Heritage Sites Tour, USC’s McKissick Museum, and more.

Users may receive 25 points per site location, for a total of 700 points max if they answer a question to receive the pin code while at the site location. The first user who visits all sites and posts a picture at the sites on Instagram, using the hashtag #SCCBlackHistoryScavengerHunt will receive a cash prize.

“African Americans have played an integral part in Columbia, South Carolina history that spans over 300 years. From enslaved workers to Civil Rights leaders to present-day history-in-the-making, we are excited to share the work of Historic Columbia and McKissick Museum for our app users,” said Khali Gallman, Soda City Certified®app creator. “We encourage everyone to free up some time during their weekends and explore! It’s a great way to discover new parts of the city while learning something new.”

All site locations of the scavenger hunt are in the Downtown Columbia area, spanning most districts. Participants may use all scavenger hunt locations at your own risk. Be safe. Have fun. Explore the Soda City.

SCC creates personalized scavenger hunts for small groups and corporate team-building exercises. The app services the following areas: Downtown Columbia, Forest Acres, West Columbia, Cayce, Harbison, Chapin, Northeast Columbia, Southeast Columbia, Lexington, Blythewood, Elgin, Irmo, St. Andrews, and Camden.
