Look No Further! The Key Was Found

This $6,000 trailer is going to one lucky reader!

TAKE A LOOK AT our custom-built camping trailer. Wouldn’t you like to explore some cool places in Wisconsin with it? You will, ifyou find the key we’ve hidden in our latest Wisconsin Treasure Hunt!

Longtime readers are familiar with this little contest that pays off with a BIG prize. To add fun to our issues, and to encourage folks
to get out and enjoy this beautiful state, we’ve run these contests since Our Wisconsin was launched. We challenge readers to join
the hunt to find the key we’ve hidden in a park somewhere in
this sizable state.

We provide a clue in each issue and print a map of the state’s 72 counties. Issue by issue, we eliminate 10 counties to narrow the search. Step by step, the mystery unfolds, which adds intrigue.

We’ve run eight of these contests so far, and winners have found
the keys to new cars, new boats and other prizes worth thousands.

Now we’re challenging readers to find the key that’ll open the door to adventure with this teardrop trailer. We’ve given two away two
in the past, and people love these units so much that we’re
awarding one more.

And why not? This gleaming rig is specially made for Our Wisconsin by Todd and Carol Mowrer at TCTeardrops of Wausau. An avid subculture of folks-on-the-go love teardrop trailers because they’re easy to set up and take down and can be pulled by the smallest cars. Plus, there’s no end to the cool accessories you can add to them. Our trailer is tricked out with a roof rack on top, storage boxes up front and in back, and a receiver hitch for a two-bike carrier or a steel cargo tray. And how about those aluminum wheels?

Inside this 5- x 9-foot model is a slide-out table, queen-size mattress, battery charger/tender and more. You can carry your boat, bikes and breakfast to the campground all in one eye-catching package!

If you’re ready to join the hunt, we’ve hidden this key well, and any park qualifies: state, county, city, village or township. Now, here are the rules...

CAMPERS PAMPERED. You’ll surely be cozy and comfortable anywhere in Wisconsin if you win this teardrop trailer. It’s ultra-towable too. Even the smallest autos can easily pull them.

The Contest Works This Way

  • The key is hidden in a public park to avoid trespassing.

  • This contest is not limited to paid subscribers.

  • At right is a map showing 10 counties where the key ISN’T hidden. Issue by issue, we’ll eliminate 10 more to narrow the search.

  • The key is in a clear biodegradable bag with a note stating, “You Found It!” along with a phone number to call and a secret code number that will be requested.

  • Your only license to hunt is a garbage bag. By collecting litter, you provide a public benefit. The bag’s benefit to you is that you won’t look as if you’re searching for something and invite competition.

  • Don’t call us. No calls will be accepted by Our Wisconsin about this program.

  • No employee of the magazine or relative of any employee—nor any of our field editors—is eligible to win.

  • Past winners and their immediate family members are not eligible to win.

  • The contest is open to anyone else of any age.

  • Finally, we provide a helpful clue each issue. The first one is: “The key is not buried. It’s hidden above the ground.”
