In honor of the 19th Amendment Centennial, the CBA will host a statewide, 11-month long scavenger hunt.  

The scavenger hunt will identify and highlight eleven different historical sites across the state related to the suffrage movement and the passage of the 19th Amendment.


To participate in the 19th Amendment Scavenger Hunt, visit the Connecticut Bar Association’s Facebook page or website on the first business day of each month to collect a clue leading you to a different historical site across the State of Connecticut.  

At each site there will be a sign saying “Check Point” with the CBA’s logo on it.

Take a picture of yourself with the check point site sign and post it on Facebook—tagging the CBA‘s (@ConnecticutBarAssociation) Facebook page— or e-mail it to info@ctbar.org for the association to post on your behalf.
