The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national, non-profit organization of middle and high school students who have a strong interest in technology. TSA was chartered in 1978 and since then over 2,000,000 students have participated in its program.  Members learn through challenging competitions, leadership activities and community service. Information is available at

Perhaps the most important benefit of TSA membership is the inspiration and enthusiasm that students gain from receiving recognition for applying their knowledge. Demonstrating skills in a forum beyond school walls motivates students, especially when there is a large, like-minded audience of peers who support them. Other benefits include:
  • Enhance technological literacy and leadership skills
  • Work on complex activities from start to finish
  • Compete on local, state and national levels
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Meet and work with business and industry leaders
  • Attend organized meetings
  • Network with students and teachers with similar interests from all over the United States
  • Contribute time and effort to a national service project
  • Receive national membership services, including the online TSA newsletter, School Scene
  • Receive recognition through TSA’s honor society, scholarships and achievement programs
  • Have a voice in a national organization that is helping to shape the future of technology education

The Technology Student Association's Motto:

Learning To Live In A Technical World

The Technology Student Association's Creed:

I believe that Technology Education holds an important place in my life in the technical world. I believe there is a need for the development of good attitudes concerning work, tools, materials, experimentation, and processes of industry.


Guided by my teachers, artisans from industry, and my own initiative, I will strive to do my best in making my school, community, state, and nation better places in which to live.

I will accept the responsibilities that are mine. I will accept the theories that are supported by proper evidence. I will explore on my own for safer, more effective methods of working and living.

I will strive to develop a cooperative attitude and will exercise tact and respect for other individuals. Through the work of my hands and mind, I will express my ideas to the best of my ability.

I will make it my goal to do better each day the task before me, and to be steadfast in my belief in my God, and my fellow Americans.
