South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard is urging communities to plan events to commemorate 125 years of statehood.
The governor's office says participating communities will be eligible for special highway sings and help with planning and promoting their local celebrations.
Communities interested in hosting a celebration must form a local committee and fill out an application.
At least two events have been scheduled to celebrate the state's 125th birthday. A special wagon train will go from Yankton to Pierre in September, and stained glass is expected to be put back in the Capitol.
Towns held special events and raised money to restore old buildings during the state's centennial celebration in 1989. Other communities also rebuilt local museums, improved city parks, and upgraded swimming pools and athletic fields.
