Nebraska Passport FAQs
What is the purpose of the Nebraska Passport program?
For seven years, the Nebraska Passport program has grown and captured the curiosity of travelers. Each year we feature 80 Nebraska tourism destinations that give travelers fresh ideas for where their paths can take them — to every corner and region in the state, showcasing beautiful scenery, interesting destinations, and more.
With over 25,000+ participants in recent years, the Nebraska Passport program is an unforgettable experience.
Where are the Nebraska Passport stops?
Each year we feature 80 of Nebraska’s tourism destinations, including museums, parks, restaurants, wineries, etc. — places that offer exciting, unique experiences for our travelers. The 80 stops are spread throughout the state and are divided into 10 themed tours.
How many stops do participants have to visit?
Passport participants can visit as many stops as they wish – one stop or all 80.
What do participants do at the Passport stops?
At each Passport stop participants receive a stamp, either in a booklet or a digital stamp on the Nebraska Passport app. Program participants must be present to receive stamps in their Passport. Passport destinations will not stamp multiple booklets for one person, or for people not present. No purchase necessary.
Participants then turn in their stamps and receive prizes.
What are the prizes?
Prizes change each year. Prizes are given for collecting set numbers of stamps. For example, 2016 Passport participants received the following prizes:
If they received 10 stamps, they won a t-shirt
If they received 20 stamps, they won a travel mug
If they received 40 stamps, they won a selfie stick
If they received 60 stamps, they won a duffel bag
If they received 80 stamps, they won a gift basket
Additionally, if participants completed any of the 10 individual tours, they received lottery tickets. Participants whom collected all 80 stamps, or submitted stories about their travels on the Nebraska Passport website, were entered to win a grand prize drawing sponsored by Omaha Steaks.
The prizes are cumulative. For example, if a participant visited all 80 stops, they received all 5 prizes.
How long do participants have to collect stamps?
The Nebraska Passport program runs May 1st to September 30th. Prize entry forms must be postmarked by October 1st, or submitted through the Nebraska Passport digital app by October 1st.
Each household may submit only one prize-entry sheet. Photocopies will not be accepted, and prize-entry sheets will not be returned.
Is there any fee for participating in the program?
There is no fee to participate in the Nebraska Passport program. There is no purchase necessary to receive Passport stamps at the 80 Passport destinations.
