INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (August 18, 2018) — The exciting, new Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was made with soy-based turf developed from science funded by soybean checkoff dollars. On a first-come, first-served basis, checkoff-paying Indiana soybean farmers and family members can join us as guests of the soybean checkoff on Sept. 9, 2018 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the museum for a fun-filled day to learn about and celebrate the growing demand of soybeans through innovative, new uses.


The Fields of Opportunity event is free for registered guests. This is an exclusive opportunity for soybean farmers and their families to enjoy the museum, meet board members, participate in special soybean farm family activities and see soybean checkoff dollars in action.


Don’t miss this one-time-only event! Go to to register for up to four free tickets per family. Children under two are free and additional tickets may be purchased from The Children’s Museum.


The Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience combines rich sports history, physical fitness, and health education in a variety of family-fun, indoor and outdoor experiences. Run, drive, jump, putt and play while learning how to stay happy, healthy and safe. Meet a legendary sports character actor, hear their story of greatness, and get coached in the drills and skills that helped them succeed. Imagine yourself in the shoes of a sports legend, and start your story today.




The Indiana Soybean Alliance works to enhance the viability of Indiana soybean farmers through the effective and efficient investment of soybean checkoff funds and the development of sound policies that protect and promote the interest of Indiana soybean farmers. ISA works to build new markets for soybeans through the promotion of grain marketing, livestock, aquaculture, production research, biofuels, environmental programs, and new uses for soybeans. ISA is led by an elected farmer board that directs investments of the soybean checkoff funds on behalf of more than 24,000 Indiana soybean farmers and promotes policies on behalf of the more than 600 dues paying members.
