Cornhusker Girl's & Boy's State will be held June 5-11 at the city campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Cornhusker Girl's & Boy's State will give at least one boy and one girl from Neligh-Oakdale the opportunity to participate in this state-wide event and learn more about our state, country, and local government through actual participation. This is one of the highest honors that a high school student can receive and relationships formed during this week long event will last a lifetime. There are also many social activities planned for the week to include dances and athletic events.
