DETROIT - The Detroit Historical Society is hosting a scavenger hunt designed to test participants' knowledge of the Motor City's historic and cultural landmarks.

The 313 Scavenger Hunt will be held Sept. 15.

Participants can register as a team of three to five people, or solo and be paired with a team. Contestants will be asked to contribute a $10 suggested donation per person.

Scavenger hunters will be released into the city with an envelope of clues and a 313 Scavenger Hunt passport, which must be stamped by a scavenger hunt staff member at each landmark.

The first three teams to find all the landmarks and return will be recognized with an assortment of prizes courtesy of the Detroit Historical Society and Hard Rock Cafe Detroit.
