Notice

The 2020 Nebraska State Fair will be a celebration of 4-H and FFA youth! 4-H and FFA livestock shows will take place on separate weekends. The 4-H contests and livestock shows will be held on the first weekend (Aug. 29-30). Static exhibits will be on display for the public to view and will also be shown virtually. Stay tuned for more details.

Static Exhibit Entry

All static exhibits will be entered by county Extension staff.

Static Exhibit Release

All static exhibits will be released to the county Extension staff unless the proper documentation has been submitted. 

Exhibitors or families wishing to pick up their own static exhibits from the Nebraska State Fair must complete an Exhibit Hall Release form and submit it to their local Extension office before August 22. The Exhibit Hall Release form must be obtained from your local Extension office. Proper paperwork must be signed by the exhibitor/family and county Extension staff. This form gives non-Extension personnel permission to pick up items after the fair. The designated person listed on the form will be responsible for picking up the item(s).

Exhibits which have properly completed and submitted release forms may be picked up by the designated person on Monday, September 7, 2020, from 7:00 PM-10:00 PM or Tuesday, September 8, 2020 from 8:00 AM-noon. Exhibits must be checked out before being removed from the exhibit hall. The person picking up the exhibit must be ready to sign for the exhibit and show their identification. 

Premier Science Award

The Premier Science Award is open to any 4-H member with at least one static exhibit selected for State Fair. Exhibitors may select one exhibit from any project area/department to complete their awards application about. An award application should be completed and turned in to the county Extension office by the county's deadline. Up to three top exhibits will be chosen to receive a $100 cash award.
