“This exhibition showcases the talent and creativity of Nebraska youth,” said Liz Hamm, 4-H photography superintendent at the Nebraska State Fair. The photographs in the exhibition were selected from hundreds of entries at the 2023 Nebraska State Fair. The chosen photos demonstrate various aspects of creativity and mastery of the medium, including solid technical execution, bold composition, and vivid color.

The purpose of the 4-H photography project is to help young people establish basic to advanced knowledge of and abilities in using photographic equipment, lighting, and composition to capture images, express feelings, and communicate ideas. Participants work through three project levels, progressing from basic to advanced photography skills and techniques.

The exhibition is on display through August 2024. The East Campus Visitors Center, located at Holdrege Street and Dairy Store Drive, is open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
