Come meet an Olympic gold medalist at the State Fair

Nebraska’s own Curt Tomasevicz will be at the Nebraska State Fair on Wednesday, September 1 – and there will be a few opportunities to meet the Olympic gold medalist in person, get an autograph and, if you bring your camera, get a picture taken.

Tomasevicz is appearing on behalf of the Nebraska Corn Board, as he is an official spokesman for Nebraska corn and corn farmers. (For more, click here and here.)

Autograph cards like the one below will be available for Tomasevicz to sign. (Check out the other photos below, too!)

If you can’t make it to the State Fair September 1, be sure to look for Tomasevicz on TV or hear him on the radio. He’ll also be at Husker Harvest Days on September 15 – a schedule for that will be posted in a week or two.
