The Iowa Pork Producers Association will hold its 6th annual Swine Spectacular on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2019, at the Hansen Agriculture Student Learning Center in Ames.  This is a pork education event for youth ages 8 to 18.  Each participant will receive a free t-shirt and compete throughout the morning to win various prizes.  Attendees can earn points in the following ways:  photo & essay entries (due Feb 11, optional), swine judging, a skill-a-thon, a written test and by attending the workshop.  Points are tallied up and the 5 youth with the most points in each division (junior, intermediate, and senior) are notified and they will then prepare for their interview/speech.  Awards follow when speeches and interviews are complete.  Swine Spectacular will begin at 8:00 a.m. and awards will finish up around 1:00 p.m

., before the ISU Block and Bridle Club’s annual Spring Market Hog Show.  Registration will open late 2018.

 

Congratulations to our 2018 Swine Spectacular Winners!
