The Northwest Hoosier Conference was an IHSAA-sanctioned conference based out of far Northwest Indiana. The conference was started by five schools in 1968, and faced numerous membership changes during its span. The far-flung conference folded in 1998, when three of its members joined other leagues, and the other four schools were unable to find suitable replacements.
