80 Lamar CISD Students Compete at National TSA Conference

Jul 17, 2023 | Lamar CISD Communications

This summer, more than 80 students from 10 different campuses across Lamar CISD competed at the National Technology Student Association (TSA) Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. These students earned their spot by mastering challenges at the Texas TSA Contest back in April.

During the national conference, approximately 7,500 students from across the country, Germany, and Turkey attended and competed in various events that challenged students’ design skills and creative thinking in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields.  

“TSA allows students to explore their creativity and follow the design process to compete in a variety of events,” TSA Advisor Kristin Rausch said. “Our students in Lamar CISD are extremely talented and should be commended for their dedication and ingenuity. In order to earn the right to compete on the National level, they had to advance from Regionals and State, both of which are also very competitive.”

In the face of fierce competition, more than half of our student participants received recognition. We are honored to celebrate the following students, campuses, and advisors who placed:
