Only two clues remain before the Nevada Day Treasure Hunt ends, and the medallion has yet to be found.

In the hunt's nine years, the prize has never gone unclaimed, organizer Jesse Olsen said Tuesday.

"The longest it's run is somebody found it on the 13th clue," Olsen said, which means if the medallion isn't found today, that record will be surpassed.

"I've heard people say this is one of the harder years, but (they've) learned a lot," Olsen said of the clues, rhyming couplets that obscurely reference Nevada history.

The first person to find the treasure, which is hidden somewhere in Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Storey, Mineral or Washoe counties, will get a $500 prize. If the winner registered at www.nvday before finding the treasure, they will get another $500.

If you find the treasure, bring it to the Nevada Appeal, 580 Mallory Way, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. today through Friday. If the treasure is not found by 5 p.m. Friday, the contest is over. Certain rules and restrictions apply; see the clues at nevadaap for the full set of rules.
