Update 1/5/21: The 2021 Swine Spectacular, scheduled for Feb. 27, has been postponed until later in the year.
Swine Spectacular is an annual 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 and essay entries (optional, due for judging prior to the event), swine judging, a skill-a-thon, a written test and by attending a workshop. Points are tallied up—the five 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 begins at 8 a.m., and awards finish up around 1 p.m., before the ISU Block & Bridle Club’s annual Spring Market Hog Show.

Congratulations to our 2020 Swine Spectacular Winners!
