Iowa Junior Honors Orchestra Festival is a state-wide honors string orchestra experience. It is a one-day affair, held at the same time as the Iowa All-State Music Festival and the Iowa Music Educators Association state convention on November 17. It is held on the campus of Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa, in the same complex as the convention and All-State. There are two orchestras of equal ability in the festival, each with about 90 participants. The groups are composed mainly of 8th and 9th graders, with a few advanced 7th graders.

Congratulations to the following Bettendorf High School students for being selected to participate in Iowa Junior Honors Orchestra 2017.
