Nevada Day Teasure Hunt rules

Beginning Oct. 8 and continuing every weekday for 15 days – or until the treasure is found – the Nevada Appeal will run clues to the treasure’s location. The 15 four-line clues were created by the Nevada Day Treasure Hunt Committee. The contest will end, regardless of whether the treasure is found, on Nevada Day, Oct. 27.

The medallion will be hidden on public property somewhere in Carson City, Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Storey or Washoe counties. The leather pouch containing the medallion will not be buried, and no structure will have to be disturbed or climbed to find it.

The first person to find the medallion and return it to the Appeal office, 580 Mallory Way in Carson City, during normal business hours will receive $1,000 and a plaque.
