The Nebraska State Fair is the mecca for 4-H and FFA exhibitors across the state to showcase their hard work throughout the year, and this year Nebraska Farm Bureau is proud to offer them an extra reward for their efforts. All 4-H and FFA large animal exhibitors will receive a T-shirt sponsored by Nebraska Farm Bureau.
“We are proud to provide these youth with a token of our appreciation for their efforts in agriculture,” said Rob Robertson, Nebraska Farm Bureau chief administrator. “The shirts will also work to pass on Farm Bureau’s agricultural pride to the next generation.”
To receive the shirt, 4-H and FFA exhibitors must redeem a coupon found in their exhibitor packets at the Nebraska Farm Bureau booth. The booth will be located in Exhibition Hall, number DA20.
The Nebraska Farm Bureau booth will be staffed by members of the Young Farmers and Ranchers Committee
, the Ag Promotion Committee
and County Farm Bureau volunteers from across the state.
“The Nebraska State Fair has always been a place to celebrate the strong agriculture industry in our state, and we’d love to see several of our members in Grand Island,” said Robertson.
The Nebraska State Fair runs from Aug. 23 through Sept. 2, 2013, in Grand Island, Neb., at Fonner Park. Visit statefair.org
