Bucky Scavenger Hunt

Tuesday, April 16 | 11:00a.m. until all Bucky’s are found
10 locations on UW Madison Campus

The Day of the Badger team has hidden 10 large Bucky plushies across campus for students to find – and keep! It’s a scavenger hunt with a twist. This Bucky has some bucks tied to it that can be donated to a UW cause of the student finder’s choice during Day of the Badger.

Once a student finds a Bucky, all they have to do is:

  • Scan the QR code and search for a cause that’s close to their heart.
  • Message @WisAlumni on Instagram with a photo of, or with, their Bucky and let us know which cause they want to support.
  • We’ll message back confirming that a donation in the amount associated with their Bucky was made on the student’s behalf to their cause of choice.
  • Good deed, and great prize, complete!

Follow along on @WisAlumni to see if you can guess where the Buckys are hidden and to see where some of the students choose for their Bucky gift to go!
