TSA State Conference Results
Posted on 04/24/2018
The 40th annual TSA state conference wrapped up on Saturday, April 21, after 3 days of competitions and months of preparation. Among an estimated 2,000 students in attendance from nearly 150 schools, a group of 12 BSHS and 9 YBMS students represented SMSD.

YBMS had a banner year at the state conference when they became the state champions in three events! Anna Chamberlin won Essays on Technology and shared a win with Madelyn Steinour in the Forensic Technology team event! Nathan Book grabbed the first place spot in Career Preparation. These three students along with Claire James also had top ten finishes in Children's Story, the Technology Bowl team event, and Safety Illustration. The team now has the opportunity to represent SMSD at Nationals in Atlanta.

BSHS highlights from the conference included a 1st place finish in Coding from Anthony Dellinger, Ben Fasick, and Alex Pedersen. Lindsey Aunkst carried on the BSHS tradition of placing in CAD Architecture by bringing home a 2nd place trophy. The team of Anthony Dellinger, Wesley Dellinger, Ben Fasick, and Alex Pederson also finished 3rd in Software Development. In an impressive showing, every high school member in attendance at the state conference finished in the top 10 in at least one of their events. Finalists earn a spot on stage during the awards ceremony, an area that received a lot of foot traffic from YBMS and BSHS students. Congratulations to these students for being recognized for their hard work.
