In the Sunday edition of the Grand Island Independent, Lauren Sedam wrote an excellent update on the progress of the Raising Nebraska exhibit.

The space is on the north side of the building, and it represents a partnership between Extension, the State Fair, the Nebraska Department of Agriculture and others.

The space, UNL Extension Educator Beth Janning said, involves plenty of technology that will not only make it interactive but will also allow staff members to keep it evolving over the years.

That’s good, she said, because the exhibit will be open year-round, both to groups with appointments and during open hours from 9 to 11 a.m. Tuesdays and 2 to 4 p.m. Thursdays.
