During a special presentation at Husker Harvest Days, Nebraska state treasurer Don Stenberg announced the winners of the third annual “NEST on the Farm” scholarship contest.
The scholarship contest invites children of Nebraska farming families to submit essays describing what farming means in their lives and how growing up in farm families influences their higher education goals.
As state treasurer, Stenberg is trustee of the Nebraska Educational Savings Trust (NEST), Nebraska’s state-sponsored 529 college savings program. During a Husker Harvest Days interview, we visited with Stenberg about the scholarship contest and the NEST program. We also discussed another one of the state treasurer’s responsibilities, returning unclaimed property to its rightful owners.
