HURON, South Dakota — Donations continue to flow in for a new 4-H exhibit hall at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron.

The state's Department of Agriculture says the South Dakota State University College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences, the SD 4-H Foundation and the state 4-H Leaders Association have donated $40,000 combined for the new facility.

The proposed 49,000-square-foot hall will feature multiple classrooms, a large kitchen for 4-H special food competitions and a performance stage.

The building that used to host some of those events was demolished in 2013. It had been built in the 1950s.

The Agriculture Department on Tuesday said the foundation donated $25,000, the college in Brookings gave $10,000 and the leaders group contributed $5,000.

Fair officials have so far raised $3.83 million of their $4.7 million goal.
