The Medallion Hunt is an event that captures the entire town come Neewollah time. Clues are released each day, and the hunt begins. Participants search scenic Independence for the infamous Medallion. The Medallion, when turned in, is worth $250 without a Neewollah button, or $500 if the finder has a button. Buttons may be purchased at Neewollah HQ.
 
Please read the rules in full before hunting for the medallion!

The Neewollah Board reserves the right to discontinue the hunt at any time if public or private property is destroyed.
