Quarter Auction

NRHH hosts the annual Quarter Auction as one of the main events in the fall to raise funds for the St. Baldrick's Foundationa charity committed to finding a cure for childhood cancers. Below you will find a breakdown of how NRHH's Annual Quarter Auction works.

To have a chance at a prize, an individual must place a minimum of 1 bid (maximum of 5 bids) on an item. Each item will have a designated bidding amount of $0.25 to $5.00 based upon value of the item.


1. Purchase at least 1 Bidding Paddle (up to a maximum up 5 Bidding Paddles) for $1 through UNL Marketplace

2. A Bidding Paddle allows you to submit 1 bid per paddle.  (i.e. If I purchase 5 paddles, I can submit up to 5 bids to have 5 chances to win any prize I bid on.)

3. During the event, we will share open links to bid on items. We will open and close bidding of items and then confirm all the bids submitted are official. After several items have been bid on, we will then draw names for each of the prizes, based upon the bids submitted, and then will call the winners.


Prizes will be awarded after the event. Individuals will be directed following the event to either pick up prizes at their residence hall front desk after delivery, or to pick them up from the main Residence Life office at WCDC on the third floor M-F during normal business hours. Your NUID Card will be required to confirm your identity.

Gift Cards: For those awarded gift cards, any gift cards that can be sent electronically will be sent to your HUSKERS email account. Others will be notified where to pick up the card.
