In an effort to encourage young Nebraskans to participate in hunting and fishing, the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation established its Youth Lifetime Half Price Permit Program. This program gives Nebraska youth age 15 and younger the chance to win the opportunity to purchase a lifetime hunt/fish combo permit for half price.

By filling out the online form below, any Nebraska youth age 15 or younger (with a valid SSN) can register to win the chance to purchase a Youth Lifetime Half Price Hunt/Fish Combo Permit. Parents, grandparents and any adult who wants to give the gift of the outdoors may also register on behalf of a young Nebraskan. This special opportunity is made possible by the Nebraska Game and Parks Foundation, along with other generous sponsors including the Hawkins Family and the Dorothy B. Davis Foundation.
