Ag Financial Institution Gives $150K For 4-H Hall

May 29, 2014, 10:44 PM


A $150,000 donation from an agricultural financial institution is putting the South Dakota State Fairgrounds one step closer toward its goal of building a new 4-H exhibit hall.

The state's Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced the donation of Nebraska-based Farm Credit Services of America.

State officials have raised more than $2.2 million toward the $4 million project.

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. The project should be finished by the end of the summer.

Recent donations have ranged from $50,000 to $1 million.
