Lincoln, Neb. —The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources and College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources are seeking items for inclusion in a time capsule to commemorate two landmark anniversaries.
In 2022, CASNR marked its 150th anniversary, and next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the passage of the legislation that formed IANR. CASNR and IANR are jointly celebrating these milestones during the Celebration of Innovation, which spans the 2022-23 academic year.
IANR and CASNR faculty, staff, students, alumni and stakeholders are invited to submit items for consideration for inclusion in the time capsule. Approximately 10 items will be selected for inclusion, with winning entries announced throughout the spring semester. Submissions will be accepted through March 1, 2023. The entry form and contest rules are available online at https://celebrateinnovation.unl.edu/time-capsule-contest.
“We’re excited to collect objects that represent the past, present and future of IANR,” said Jessie Brophy, IANR director of external relations. “This is a great chance for students, faculty, staff, alumni and stakeholders to share examples of what they think make IANR and CASNR innovative and special.”
The time capsule will be sealed on June 9, 2023. It is scheduled to be opened in 2073, in honor of the 200th anniversary of CASNR and the 100th anniversary of IANR.
