History

The JSS ran from October 1997[1] to 2007 and replaced the Junior Pro Tour program (which ran from 1996 to 1997 and was open to players 18 and younger)[2] Players that already had earned Pro Points were not allowed to participate.[3] In North America, the Junior Super Series were replaced by the Magic: The Gathering Scholarship Series (MSS),[4] but these ended in 2008 as well.

JSS Challenge

All players received a Premium alternate art Card. The first through eighth place finishers each received a different Premium Card alternate art card. Additional packs of Magic: The Gathering boosters were awarded to top players. The winner received a $500 college scholarship and an invitation to the Junior Super Series Championship.

JSS Championship

The JSS Championship had over $100,000 up for grabs in college scholarships.
