HURON, S.D. (AP) - Donations continue to flow to a campaign of the South Dakota State Fairgrounds to build a new 4-H exhibit hall.

The state’s Department of Agriculture on Wednesday announced a $50,000 donation from South Dakota-based BankWest.

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

The proposed 47,000-square-foot hall will feature multiple 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.

Fair officials expect construction to begin in the spring of 2015. The project should be finished by the end of the summer.

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