Celebration of Youth XXIII
Monday, September 26, 2016 to Saturday, October 15, 2016
Each year youth from around the state compete at the Nebraska State Fair in the 4-H areas of Clothing, Home Environment and Quilt Quest. Each year we spotlight the prize winners in these categories, and each year the Hillestad gallery audiences are wow'd by the creativity, invention and craftsmanship on display. This year's twenty-third iteration of the show once again brings to campus some of the most engaging and imaginative expressions from a broad cross-section of Nebraska's talented young people.
