18th Annual Nevada Day Treasure Hunt

October 6-27, 2020


Help us celebrate Nevada's Birthday! A series of 16 clues will lead a clever hunter to the medallion hidden somewhere in Carson, Churchill, Douglas, Lyon, Mineral, Pershing, Storey, or Washoe Counties. It is not buried, and no structure needs to be disturbed or climbed to find it. Hunting must be confined to daylight hours. Clues will highlight Northern Nevada's colorful past (and present).

Clues will be given daily, Tuesday through Saturday, and will be available in the paper edition of the Nevada Appeal.  The first clue will be published October 6, 2020.

Find the medallion and win up to $1000.

Nevada Day TreasureHunt

The Nevada Day Treasure Hunt will begin on October 6th!


All hunters must comply with the Governor’s orders and any local guidelines while hunting.  While in public spaces, hunters must wear face coverings and maintain social distance (6 feet).


If the Nevada Day Treasure Hunt Committee receives reports from third parties that the Governor’s orders and local guidelines are not being complied with, we will unfortunately have to terminate the hunt early and retrieve the medallion from its hiding spot.
