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!
