Special Youth Lifetime Half Price Permit Drawing

The entry period is now closed. Winners of the drawing will be contacted by the Nebraska Game and Parks over the next few weeks regarding the opportunity to purchase a permit. Thank you for your interest.

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 opportunity to purchase a lifetime hunt, fish and other permits for half price. Typically, drawings for the opportunity to purchase half-price youth lifetime permits are held at special events across the state throughout the year.

This year, the Foundation is extending a special online Youth Lifetime Half Price Permit drawing. By filling out the online form below, any Nebraska youth age 15 or younger can register to win the chance to purchase one of up to 250 Youth Lifetime Half Price Permits. 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.
