About Ag Awareness Festival
Currently, several agricultural awareness festivals are held each year in the Omaha, Lincoln and surrounding areas. More than 20 agribusinesses, commodity associations, food industry companies and UNL Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources departments partner together to present the festivals.
To date, more than 12,300 youth have participated. These youth better understand the origins of our food supply, as well as the career and educational opportunities available to them through agriculture—even in urban areas.
