FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - The DNR Building at the Minnesota State Fair has several beautiful boats on display this year that were made by youth in the Twin Cities. It's part of a program called Urban Boatbuilders. It works with youth to develop leadership, academic and vocation skills through boat building.

The organization has been around since 1995, but this is their first year at the Minnesota State Fair.

You can learn more about Urban Boatbuilders by going to their website.

If you want to see them in action, their display is located on the south side of the DNR building at the Minnesota State Fair.
