A Grand Forks man is the winner of the 3rd Annual Potato Bowl Pete Hidden Medallion Contest.

Chad Olson will receive $1,200 worth of Hugo’s Family Market gift certificates. Olson followed the clues and found the medallion hidden behind the visitors’ information kiosk in Sherlock Park in East Grand Forks. Besides the free groceries, Olson will receive two tickets to Saturday’s Potato Bowl football game, and the opportunity to ride on the Hugo’s entry in the Potato Bowl Parade.

Olson said, “It couldn’t have happened at a better time.” Olson also said his 9 year-old daughter Morgan is excited and is looking forward to riding with him in the parade.
