The Żejtun National Heritage Treasure Hunt organised by Żejtun Organisation to Empower You (ŻOEY), will be a fun learning activity for children and youths, with more than €2000 in prizes to be won. It will include a search for different facts regarding the culture and lifestyle among the periphery of Żejtun. Participants will have 90 minutes to search buildings, places and facts in this traditional village.

The hunt for kids and teens will be done by walk around the core village, while youths can use any means of transport, from bicycles to cars, to search for facts in the outskirts of Żejtun. Participants will have the opportunity to ask the passers-by to give them information about the required place they need to find.

The activity will start from Ġnien l-Għannejja Żwieten (Ta’ San Girgor) where all the participants will be provided with a heritage map of the area, a pack full of information about Żejtun’s history and culture.

The main task is to search for aspects and objects shown in small snapshots, then as a group of 4, participants have to search for these snapshots and take a group selfie with that particular place or to write  an answer. The winner will be determined by the highest number of places found and the highest number of points collected.

Participants in a fun environment, will learn about the cultural habits of the past generation in the oldest locality in the South-East of Malta. Facts about the lifestyle of citizens in this particular area, from dialects, to legends, way of life, celebrations and history facts.
