Idaho TSA State Leadership Conference

Each year, The College of Southern Idaho hosts Idaho TSA for its annual State Leadership Conference. Each affiliated member, both at the Middle School and the High School level, has the opportunity to compete in up to 6 of over 40 offered contest areas!

A wide variety of contests are offered in areas such as: Digital Photography, Drone Flight & Technology, Music Production, Structural Design & Engineering, Problem Solving, and Video Game Design, among many more. Students earning the highest scores in each contest area are awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals on stage at our closing ceremonies session, in front of their parents, teachers and fellow Idaho TSA members.

New to the ITSA State Leadership Conference is the All Hands on Tech event, which was designed to put current and emerging technologies in the hands of both students and educators alike. This hands on exploration of technology allows businesses and students interact, and provides an incredible opportunity for businesses in the technology industry to engage with some of Idaho's best and brightest students!

Idaho TSA has teamed up with St. Luke's Hospital and Go Baby Go! to build and provide modified cars for children with limitations to their physical mobility. Go Baby Go! is a national, community-based research, design and outreach program that provides modified ride-on cars to children, aged newborn to 6 years old who experience physical limitations in their mobility. Go Baby Go! works with families, clinicians and industry partners to provide electrical or mechanical modifications to fit that child's specific mobile needs.
