The NHSSHOF Needs Your Help!
The Nebraska High School Sports Hall of Fame is looking for memorabilia that could be displayed in the Hall.
These items could be donated or loaned for a designated period of time.
Nebraska high school sports goes back to the early 1900s and we hope there are items out there that could be shared with the Hall of Fame and high school sports fans.Items that could be considered would be, but not limited to, things like equipment, uniforms, shoes, balls, photos, newspaper articles, letter jackets, trophies, championship game programs and game film (16 mm, super 8, VHS and DVD).
We are also looking for memorabilia that is rare or out of the ordinary.
If you have something to share or donate with high school sports fans, contact the High School Sports Hall of Fame office @ email@example.com or call 402 476-4767
