The Waxahachie Daily Light and Walmart are giving away a $500 shopping spree this Christmas to one lucky reader.

Beginning with Tuesday’s edition and continuing through Dec. 24 – or until the lucky reader finds Santa’s lost gift – one clue will be published in each edition to direct you to where the lost gift is located in our annual “Santa Lost a Gift” contest.

As part of the contest, a medallion has been hidden in a public place within the city limits of Waxahachie.

When the individual who locates the medallion brings it to the Daily Light office at 200 West Marvin Ave., they will receive a $500 gift card from Walmart – just in time for Christmas shopping.

There is no purchase necessary to participate in the contest. All you have to do is follow the clues published in each day’s edition to help find the lost medallion.

“We started this contest last year and everyone had a good time with it,” said Marvin Clark, Daily Light circulation director. “We want to thank our co-sponsor, Walmart, for helping us do this again. We wish everyone good luck this year on helping Santa find his lost gift. Let the hunt begin!”
