We are very excited to offer the famous Horse Racing event at the Nebraska Lions State Convention in Columbus, NE.  Many of you have participated in the past, for those that haven’t.  This is a miniature wood horse race in which Clubs can enter a horse to “race”  The race is performed on a checkered grid using random generated numbers to move the horse.  Donations to the Foundation can be made on the horses, in which a raffle prize can be won.  More details on that, at the event.  


The 2nd part of the event is judging the horses “congeniality”. Yes, Clubs need to decorate the blank horse.  It can be anything fun.  We’ve seen them made to look like Lions, nurses, mascots, you name it.  There will be cash prizes for the winners decided by a panel of expert judges.  To get started, we need your club to Enter by ordering a Horse today.  You may re-use a previously decorated horse for the Racing Contest ONLY.  But you still need to ENTER

Fill out the form below and click submit.


Payments will be collected at State Convention

Decorate it, then bring it to the Convention!  You are more than welcome to send the horse with any Lion from any Club to enter.
