New Children’s Contest Raises Awareness About Hygiene In Jamestown

JAMESTOWN – A new scavenger hunt is seeking to raise awareness about stopping the spread of Coronavirus in the Jamestown area.

Known as the Harry the Hygiene Hound Children’s Scavenger Hunt, the campaign takes place outside of 50 businesses located throughout Jamestown and Lakewood area.

Launched last week, the brainchild of Jamestown resident Rebecca Rosen calls on kids 14-years-old and younger equipped with mask and gloves to find hygiene reminders posted around the community.

Rosen says local artist Gary Peters helped create the mascot.

“I had the concept of Harry the Hygiene Hound, I knew what he wanted to look like, but, I am not an artist by anyway, shape or form,” explained Rosen. “So I contacted Gary, because he does wonderful murals for the Lucille Ball Desi Arnaz Center, and I asked him if he would like to become involved in helping the community during the pandemic, and he stepped right up to the plate.”

The signs, remind everyone to wash their hands, stay six feet apart, tell someone if they are sick and remind them not to touch their face.

Once contestants find all the locations, they’re asked to email them to Harry with their name, address and phone number to

In total, there is $200 worth of prizes donated by local businesses. The contest ends on Friday.

Rosen also thanks the Jamestown and Lakewood Mayor’s office, and the 50 businesses, for helping launch the campaign.
