LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The 2020 Oktoberfest USA medallion hunt came to an end Thursday as Amy Ellingson found the medallion under a pavilion pole at Bluffview Park.

Ellingson, a retired Logan High School teacher, has participated in medallion hunts for 30 years alongside her husband, Bill. Their sons, Mark and Matt, also chipped in to help figure out the clues.

Ellingson will collect the prize package, including $500 cash and a swag basket of Altra Federal Credit Untion and Oktoberfest goods.

One clue per day was issued starting Monday.
