Volunteers are needed each day of the Nebraska State Fair from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. to help welcome those visiting the Livestock Birthing Pavilion. Work a shift when you attend the fair and help share your love and knowledge of the industry.

Nebraska’s Largest Classroom will be held Tuesday, August 31, Wednesday, September 1 and Thursday, September 2 in the Livestock Birthing Pavilion. During this three-day event, the Nebraska State Fair will welcome more than 100 schools (public/private/homeschools) and almost 4,000 students, teachers and sponsors.
