Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met (three-fourths of all the members elected to each Branch concurring therein):

Section 1. That the sum of Seven Thousand Dollars ($7,000.00) is hereby appropriated out of the Treasury of the State of Delaware to the "Kent and Sussex County Fair, Incorporated," a corporation of the State of Delaware, for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1939 and ending June 30, 1940, and a like sum of Seven Thousand Dollars ($7,000.00) for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 1940 and ending June 30, 1941. Said appropriation shall be used and expended only for prizes for meritorious achievements in agriculture, stock and poultry raising, and in works of manual training and the domestic arts. Such prizes shall be awarded by an Award Committee, which shall be appointed within ten days after this Act becomes effective, one member of which shall be named by the Governor from the personnel of the State Board of Agriculture, and the remaining members shall be named by the Kent and Sussex County Fair, Incorporated. Said corporation shall on or before the first day of December in each of said fiscal years, file with the State Auditor a sworn itemized statement showing the name of each person to whom a prize has been awarded, for what each prize was awarded and the amount of each prize, and showing also the grand total of said prizes, which statement shall be sworn to and signed before a Notary Public, by both the President and Treasurer of said corporation; when said statement shall have been audited by the State Auditor and found to be true and correct and according to law he shall authorize and direct the State Treasurer to pay to said corporation in each of said fiscal years the total sum shown to be due for prizes by said itemized list; provided, however, said sum shall not exceed Seven Thousand Dollars ($7,000.00) for each of said years and should said sum be less than the amount appropriated by this Act, then the unused balance shall each year remain in and revert to the State Treasury and shall in no case be paid to said corporation.

Section 2. That this Act shall be known as a Supplementary Appropriation Act and the money hereby appropriated shall be paid out of the General Funds of the State Treasury not otherwise appropriated.

Approved August 14, 1939.
