First American Bank, the Hudson, WI, based bank that has merged with Great Northern Bank here in St. Michael, will be continuing the annual tradition of the St. Michael Daze and Knights week medallion hunt, the business announced today.
In the past, the Harvest Hunt has included a cash prize for the person who discovers the prize, hidden during the week leading up to St. Michael Daze and Knights, set for Aug. 8 and 9 in St. Michael this year.
Here are some of the past guidelines – PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE:
There will be a total of seven clues leading you to the medallion. The first clue will be posted on the North Wright County Today website Saturday, Aug. 2, and by noon each day thereafter. Additionally, the clues will be located at participating businesses in and around St. Michael.
If you are the first one to find the medallion, you will win a cash prize of $1,000, to be awarded at St. Michael Daze & Knights Festival at the Shane Martin concert on Saturday, August 10.
Other important notes:
•The Harvest Hunt medallion is hidden on St. Michael city property which is accessible to the public — and not at any residence. No disassembly or digging will be required to find the medallion, which includes light fixtures or park equipment.

•Winners must be 18 years of age to claim the prize, but younger hunters may help search for the medallion if accompanied by an adult.
•The sponsors of the Harvest Hunt assume no responsibility for accident or injuries sustained by participants. Participants are urged to use reasonable safety precautions, demonstrate good sportsmanship and follow all rules set by the Harvest Hunt committee.
•A purchase will not improve your chance of winning the Harvest Hunt.
•The bank reserves the right to discontinue the Harvest Hunt at any time.
•In the event the hidden medallion is not found, the $1000 prize will be donated to the Hanover Food Shelf.
