WIT had the honor of hosting the Yahooligans (Yahoo! employees' children) on Thursday, April 28th 2011.

When the kids arrived in the morning, they were beyond excited to find a scavenger hunt awaiting, with a treasure (prize) at the end. The scavenger hunt gave riddles to the Yahooligans, guiding them to various spots on the Media Studios North Campus. For the kids, crayons marked the spot: giant chessboard, jaguar sculpture, mini golf course, cacti, the SOC room, and the rose garden. The prize was not won merely for finishing the scavenger hunt, they also had to create a unique Yahoo! logo. The talent of these kids was outstanding. Here are a few of the kids and their logos.

At the end of the day, they were greeted with gift bags and rootbeer floats!
A parent, Kristin Van Cuyck said of the event, "Heston said he had the best day of his life since he got to be with me at work. He also thought Yahoo! was way cool."

All in all, we couldn't tell who had more fun, the kids or the parents!
