Thank You & Award Cards
Award Winners - Update!
After the Parade of Champions, it was brought to our attention that some youth were missing award cards. After going through everything, we have redone our list of all of the awards that were given out this year. Attached is the updated list. Please take a look, and if your youth are missing award/thank you cards for any of their awards, please let the office know and we'll make sure to have some ready for you when you come to drop off your other cards!
Thank you and sorry for the confusion!
State Fair Entries
The online entry system for the 2023 Nebraska State Fair is open to livestock and in-person contest participants. The deadline for families to enter is August 10th at 8 PM central time.
