YN 14 YEAR Giveaway #2 – The 14 Year Hunt

This idea was sent in by a reader back in 2010 and we did it again for our 12th and 13th Anniversary, and it’s always fun and has a great response! It won’t be for everyone, but it will be fun for those who choose to take part.

The first thing you need to do is print out the main 14 year logo below, you will need to include this in ALL photos to verify they are your photos and taken for this giveaway. On most computers you can simply right click and print it, you can also click here for the URL to just the image for those printing from a mobile phone or device.

Okay, now look at the list of 14 obscure items below. Find each of the items you need, gather what is needed or go to a location, place the logo you printed out in front of them and take a picture. Once you have all 14 done, email the images to us at YodasnewsAnniversary@gmail.com with the subject “14 Year Hunt” – We WILL be sharing some of the pictures online and on social media, so make sure what is in your photos is okay for the public to see.


1)  Create your own Happy 14th Anniversary message (can be a sign, a drawing, a sculpture, anything you want)

2)  A Star Wars branded grocery item

3)  Something Fuzzy

4)  Picture of a store Star Wars display

5)  Star Wars figure or item in a fridge or freezer

6)  Something Green

There will be TWO Winners (and it is possible for the same person to win both).

The Early Bird Prize – The first person that sends in all 14 photos that are in the proper format wins a $40 Gift Card to BBTS, they are still eligible for the grand prize. We will be sharing all 14 images from the Early Bird winner, this will help others to see how it’s done!
