MISSION

For more than three decades, Colorado TSA has been fulfilling our mission of preparing its members to foster personal growth, leadership, and opportunities in engineering and technology. Every day, our members apply and integrate these skills and concepts through curricular activities, competitions, and related programs.

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

HISTORY

The Colorado Technology Student Association got its start in 1986 when it was granted a charter as a state affiliate of the American Industrial Arts Student Association (AIASA).

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.”

STRUCTURE

TSA is a Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO). CTSOs are the required leadership component of Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. CTSOs prep secondary students for the workforce through the program of work, which includes professional development, business and industry connections, community service, financial leadership, public relations, and social activities. The CTSO that best aligns with engineering, technology, and media arts programs in the state of Colorado is TSA.

Colorado TSA is a state delegation of National TSA, Inc., which is a nationally recognized CTSO. Colorado TSA holds its own charter and hosts its own state events throughout the year such as Fall Conference and State Conference.

Affiliating at the national level automatically affiliates you at the state level. Please feel free to browse our website to learn more about the programs and opportunities we offer. We hope you choose TSA!
