The Junior Super Series is a tournament environment dedicated to younger Magic players. Each year, hundreds of Challenges take place at different places in the USA and Canada over the period of about half a year. All people with an age of 15 and under without Pro Tour experience can participate and compete against each other in a Standard Constructed tournament format. During these Challenges, two different special promotional cards are given out. One is rewarded to every participant of the Challenge, the other is given to the eight highest-ranking players, to the fairest player (Most Sporting Player), and to the top-ranked player at the age of 12 or below (Top Youngster) of the Challenge. In addition, the two top-ranking players are invited to the Junior Super Series Championship which takes place once a year and concludes the Junior Super Series season for that year.

Starting with 2006, the prize schedule was slightly altered. From then on, each year was divided in a Winter Season and a Spring Season. Different participation bonus cards were given out each season, but prize cards were no longer awarded.

An equivalent tounament environment, called Japan Junior Tournament, has been launched in Japan in July 2002. Starting with the 2003 season in July 2003, special Japanese promotional cards were awarded by a similar schedule.

In 2004, the Junior Super Series has started in Europe under the shortened title of Junior Series.

Sometimes, promotional items such as tokens or life counters are given out at the Junior Super Series Championships.

Due to a sorting error, the promotional cards Serra Avatar and Thran Quarry were additionally distributed in English Urza's Destiny booster packs in place of uncommon cards.

In 2007, The Junior Super Series has been replaced by the Magic: The Gathering Scholarship Series in North America.

From Thomas M. Baxa: This is a large painting, featuring creatures from the Onslaught block, that I did for a print ad for MTG JSS (Junior Super Series) 2002. JSS was organized play’s tournament for youngsters. The campaign was called a “path to success”, so I painted a path with dangers as you move up the mountain to success. I thought it would be cool to have the words etched into the rocks in the painting and the path lit up. I actually did three of these. This one, the swamp one, and a forest one (but I don't know where that painting is anymore).
