A Message from the Governor

Fellow Nebraskans,

As Chairperson of the Board of the NEBRASKAland Foundation, I welcome you to our website.  Since being formed by then-Governor Frank Morrison in 1962, the NEBRASKAland Foundation (NLF) has been working to fulfill our mission of promoting Nebraska and honoring our people.


Every year near Nebraska’s birthday on March 1st the Foundation holds the Statehood Day Dinner in the rotunda of our magnificent capitol building to honor outstanding Nebraskans.  Throughout the year, the NLF presents numerous Rising Star Awards to new and emerging attractions in the state in addition to being involved in educational programs.

Please take a few minutes to explore this website and learn new and interesting facts about Nebraska.  Check out the links to exciting information about Nebraska.  After exploring, you can help promote our state by making recommendations by clicking on the “Get Involved” button. 

Nebraska is the best place in the world to live, work, and raise a family – we truly are the Good Life.  Bookmark the NLF website and keep coming back to stay in touch for news and other developments.
