New motto adopted at national conference

At the 2016 National TSA Conference, a new motto was proposed and adopted by the membership. Within 60 days of the conference, the new motto for TSA shall be:

LEARNING TO LEAD IN A TECHNICAL WORLD

The prevailing thought was that the motto should be more reflective of the leadership nature of our career and technical student organization (CTSO). The change will be effective 60 days from the end of the national conference.

National Conference Huge Success for COTSA

The 2016 National TSA Conference, held June 27-July 2 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN,  featured the work of nearly 8,000 of the best and brightest students in STEM education. When the dust had settled from the multi-day competition, Colorado had a number of chapters receive top 10 rankings and several students earn recognition as the top three in the nation. Below is a listing of the results for Colorado TSA chapters. You may view the complete listing of events here.
