To continue a newer Syttende Mai tradition, 
17 wooden medallions will be hidden sometime during the week of May 8th.
 An example of what the medallions look like is above.
 
**There are no clues to help you find these medallions, it is sheer luck on finder's part.
 
**SOME of the medallions are worth a cash prize and the finder can keep the medallion.
 
**A person can find more than one medallion and then register it at the information booth no later than Sunday, May 15th by 5:00pm to find out if that particular medallion is worth a CASH PRIZE!!!

** Found medallions need to be shown and registered at the Syttende Mai Information Booth during its open hours 8am-5pm on Saturday, May 14th and Sunday May, 15th.

**No medallion reward money will be issued after 5 PM on May 15. So be sure to show/register found medallions before that ending time!

**Medallions will be hidden within the City limits of Westby, be accessible 24/7, will not be hidden on anyone's personal property and will be safely accessible for this hunt.
