Riddling Instructions:

When You Find the Medallion: Immediately, take a selfie while holding the medallion in the location that you found it.  Then email the selfie, your name, the location you found it, along with your mailing address and phone number to [email protected]. Your prize package will be mailed to you and your selfie will be published on Lowell’s First Look web page. The medallion is yours to keep as a memory of riddling expertise.

Always Remember: Hidden medallions are accessible 24 hours a day. They will always be hidden in the City of Lowell and nearby township locations linked to the city by sidewalk or trail.  They will never be on private property.  They will never be in the cemetery.  They will never be buried in the ground. You may have to move grass, snow or leaves or remove a covering of colored tape to see them. They will always be within reachable height by an adult.  They could be hanging on a string or rubber band or attached by a magnet.  Your participation in this activity is purely voluntary. Please respect icy, slippery conditions and crossing busy streets.  Most of all, have fun solving the riddle.

Riddler Prize Donations: The Lowell Riddler welcomes prize donations of gift cards and Lowell Bucks in $20-$25 amounts! Help “Riddle It Forward” by boosting Lowell businesses and create some family fun at the same time! Send those gift cards and Lowell Bucks to The Lowell Riddler, P.O. Box 883, Ada, MI 49301 OR drop them off at the Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce.  Your generosity will be mentioned as a prize sponsor unless you prefer to be anonymous.  Please direct your questions and comments to [email protected]

We will be publishing new clues each Saturday at 9 am. Once a riddle has been solved we will update this article, the graphic at the top of our website, and the Facebook post where we shared the article to indicate that the current riddle has been solved. This will be done as soon as we’re able after hearing from The Riddler. Within a few days after a riddle has been solved we will publish an article explaining where the riddle was found and who the winner is. Happy hunting!


  1. Is it possible to include where each solved riddle medallion was located?

    I’m from Lowell, and just came across this activity; what a great idea and marketing technique to get all kinds of people involved with their community. Very cool!

    • Hi Erin! After each riddle is solved we post a separate article telling people where it was found, how found it, and how the clues led to the location. If you keep checking our webpage or follow us on Facebook you’ll see when they are published.

      There is only one more riddle left before the Lowell Riddler takes a break for the rest of the year and will hopefully return in spring 2023.
