University of Wisconsin-Madison student organization, Badger Cru, is hosting an on-campus egg hunt to celebrate Easter. The catch? One of the eggs contains a $500 cash prize.
Badger Cru is a multi-denominational, Christian, student organization and is a subdivision of a larger organization known simply as Cru. According to their website, Cru is present on more than 1,200 campuses across the United States.
Badger Cru’s website describes that the primary purpose of the organization is to facilitate a connection between UW-Madison students and faculty and Christian spirituality.
The organization announced rules for those interested in participating in the egg hunt on the group’s Instagram, including the fact that the egg is hidden on UW-Madison property and only students are allowed to claim the prize. Further, no “trespassing or damage to property” is needed to find the egg. The egg in question contains a voucher that can be redeemed for cash.
Badger Cru announced that they plan to release one clue per day regarding the egg’s location beginning Monday, when the group posted a poem which alludes to the whereabouts of the $500 on the organization’s website. The clue is as follows,
“Behold an egg of five hundred worth
was placed in Badgerland, hidden above earth.
No need for a shovel to enjoy the pleasure,
when on UW’s property you seek for the treasure.
Abide by the rules, have care as you tread.
Nothing illicit is required; destroy no flower bed.
It’s Easter week, and the fun’s in the chase.
Hop on over; find the funds in the case.
Compete fast as a team or play this one solo.
It’s out, high and in, near or far, yet ever so low.
“To the victor belong the spoils,” the adage goes.
Text a picture with the voucher–that’s the winning pose.
If it’s not found today, be not anxious child.
Daily clues ’round noon cut right through the wild.”
Badger Cru plans on posting additional clues on its website every day until the egg is found.
