The Strawberry Fest medallion was found Tuesday morning, ending the seven-day hunt in Cottage Grove.
The medallion was found by Connor Mitchell-Murray, 11, and his parents, Mike and Colleen Murray. They found it hidden under the backstop at the baseball field at Oakwood Park. The medallion, stored in a plastic baggie and wrapped in tape, was beneath a pile of leaves. They did not have a Strawberry Fest button.
The Strawberry Fest Medallion Hunt is co-sponsored by the Bulletin and Edina Realty.

Here were the five posted clues:
It's Strawberry Fest once again
This celebration's a perfect 10
There's a medallion hidden out there
on Cottage Grove property, that's where
Back on the trail and ready for more?
This hunt's neither task nor chore
So settle in and give it a try
Your prize is dry but not high
Pursuit of the treasure picks up on Day 3
Don't waste your time checking water or tree
If you're still stumped on which way to head
Off toward the west is where you should tread
As the city festival passes its peak
We assure you these hints are not tongue in cheek
If you hit it rich, they say don't yell 'Hark!'
Be glad for your luck and bow from the park
It's Day 5 of the medallion search
You need not scour from a perch
Recruit a team, but tools you ought not wield
For this prize, head for a field
