A $1,000 Donation Will Get Your Name On New State Fair Building

HURON, S.D. (AP) — Officials with the South Dakota State Fairgrounds hope to raise donations during the ongoing fair in Huron toward the goal of building a new 4-H exhibit hall.

The state’s Department of Agriculture hopes to entice fairgoers to donate more than $1,000 by giving them the opportunity to have their name etch into one of the bricks near the new exhibit hall.

State officials have a $4 million goal. The proposed 47,000-square-foot hall will feature classrooms, a large kitchen for 4-H special food competitions, year-round concessions and a performance stage.

The building that used to host some of those events was demolished last year. It had been built in the 1950s.

Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2015 and be finished by the end of that summer.
