GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — Gates and Lincoln Elementary students from Grand Island were the first kids through the Nebraska State Fair admission gates on Monday. But they certainly were not the last as elementary school students from across the state converged on the fair to make it Nebraska's Largest Classroom.
Buses unloaded students in a steady stream Monday morning. Each school group had its own itinerary. But as more and more schools arrived, it became common for the kids to converge at the same place, especially for some of the animal attractions.
