The Indiana Junior Swine Circuit, IJSC, is a circuit of sanctioned shows throughout Indiana for Junior Swine Exhibitors to participate.
Members of the IJSC will accumulate points from each show that they enter. Awards will be presented to the top point achievers in each of four showmanship & skill-a-thon divisions and in pig performance. These members will be honored at an awards ceremony at the Indiana State Fair. Prizes and awards will be presented to the top individuals in the following age divisions, based on the member's age on January 1 of the show season: Novice: 5-8, Junior: 9-12, Intermediate: 13-16, and Senior: 17-21.
The IJSC's main goal is to provide Junior Swine Exhibitors the opportunity to further their development of citizenship, leadership, and sportsmanship. The idea behind the organization of the IJSC is to reward the junior members for the hard work and dedication they give to their swine projects. Other goals are to provide scholarships to worthy college age members, promote Indiana Show Pig breeders and their sales, and support the show pig industry of Indiana.
