2019  Nebraska State Fair 4-H Info

Animal exhibitors (4-H ages 10–18, FFA ages 10–21) are eligible to participate at the Nebraska State Fair regardless of county fair placing. 4-H/FFA youth or their families must submit their animal entries in ShoWorks online before Saturday, Aug. 10, 8 p.m. Information, instructions and link to register are HERE. Lancaster County Extension staff will NOT collect State Fair animal entries or entry fees.

At the Lancaster County Super Fair, 4-H static exhibits will be selected for the Nebraska State Fair by the judges in the respective areas. A state fair sticker will be placed on all exhibits selected for State Fair along with a detailed State Fair instruction sheet. Alternates will be chosen and notified if they become eligible to participate. Note: In many cases, level 1 projects do not advance to the state fair. 4-H members with qualifying static exhibits will receive information in the mail after the Super Fair about entering at State Fair.

New in 2019: 4-H youth exhibiting static exhibits at the Nebraska State Fair will order advance discount tickets directly from the Nebraska State Fair. Discount tickets will no longer be available through the county offices. Details on ordering tickets will be available soon. All livestock exhibitors and in-person event exhibitors (contests, fashion show, presentations) will still be able to order discounted tickets when they enter in ShoWorks for State Fair. Additional information is available in the State Fair Operations Handbook HERE.
