Passport FAQs: Getting Your Prizes!
Prizes are not ordered until after the program is over on Sept. 30. The final date to collect stamps is Saturday, Sept. 30.
Envelopes must be postmarked by Oct. 2, 2017 and digital stamps must be submitted by Oct. 2, 2017. On page 43 of the Passport booklet it says to allow up to 10 weeks after Sept. 30 to receive your prizes. However, we are going to try our best to get them to you as soon after Sept. 30 as possible.
View current Passport stop hour changes. Sometimes the Passport stops need to revise their hours due to unavoidable operational changes. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you collected both booklet stamps and digital stamps,
you can mail your booklet stamps to the address on the prize entry form and submit your digital stamps through the app by clicking on the drop down menu and “Submit Passport.” You can submit these stamps at any time. Once we receive both your booklet and digital stamps, Nebraska Tourism staff will combine your stamp totals to determine your prizes.
When mailing your prize entry sheets, you are welcome to put more than one prize entry sheet in your envelope. Separate envelopes for each prize entry ARE NOT required.
