Supporting Events Sponsored by Others

The Sodbusters support the annual Sterling Picnic, by organizing and sponsoring the picnic parade, as well as sponsoring an all day antique tractor display. Members of our club also exhibit at other antique tractor shows, parades, town picnics, and county fairs throughout Southeast Nebraska.

Support for Education

There are several ways we provide educational opportunities for our younger generation.  First off, our show provides a living history lesson for young folks who attend.  They can see first hand how their grand parents and great-grand parents made their living on the farm. Secondly, we support, exhibit at ,and help with living history demonstrations at events sponsored by others such as “Living History Day” — a day long history lesson for 5th graders from schools throughout Southeast Nebraska — held annually in Table Rock, Nebraska. A third way we support education is by sponsoring our own annual scholarship.  The Deer Creek Sodbusters scholarship is a $250.00 cash scholarship awarded annually to a graduating high school student from Southeast Nebraska who is pursuing higher education in an agriculturally related field.  In determining the recipient of the award, academic achievement and leadership qualities of the applicants are considered, but a major consideration is financial need.  The scholarship applies to attendance at a trade school or community college as well as a four year college or university
