Women's Building

Besides all of the static exhibits and vendors that call the Women's Building home during the State Fair, a full-sized kitchen and auditorium are also located in the building! A building schedule will be posted once it's confirmed.


The Domestic Engineer Award has been renamed the Bert Stiner Domestic Engineer Award in memory of Bert Stiner.  Bert's family wanted to do something in honor of their wife and mother at the South Dakota State Fair, Women's Building.  This award depicts the many, many years of her participation in the Women's Building as well as many community service organizations, church, and many other activities.

This award is the highest award one can receive as an exhibitor in the Women's Building.  The Stiner Family is sponsoring this award and will continue to do so for many years to come.  They have donated a perpetual plaque for this award that will list each year's winner by name.  You will be able to see this plaque as you enter the Women's Building on the east wall.
