The North Carolina Technology Student Association (NC-TSA) will hold its Western Region Conference on February 23, 2018 at Appalachian State University .
The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national non-profit organization devoted exclusively to the needs of elementary, middle and high school students with a dedicated interest in technology. Assisting TSA's 300,000 plus student members is a strong support system of educators, alumni, parents and business leaders who believe in the importance of a technologically literate society.
Volunteers do not have to be technology gurus! We can utilize individuals with different talents and skills. Judges will be given a rating form that describes the minimal criteria to evaluate and the number of possible points a contestant can receive ? i.e., judging Prepared Presentation will be based on the following criteria:
|Presentation introduction||10 pts||Knowledge of materials||15 pts|
|Organization||15 pts||Stage presence||10 pts|
|Voice /Language||10 pts||Audio / Visual Materials||10 pts|
|Conclusion||10 pts||Transitions||10 pts|
We have several types of events, static displays, and active and competitive events where finalists must make a presentation. (Please review the event descriptions.) Some events can be judged immediately upon arrival (after 10:00 AM). Other events may require an interview or a finalist to report later in the day. For example, Invention & Innovations requires the finalist to report back for an additional presentation. We are aware that some individuals may only be able to judge one part of the event; please understand this is fine. Although we cannot predict how long it will take to judge an event, we are asking that you be willing, if possible, to commit two hours of your time to this process. Please review the tentative event schedule to plan your day.
Volunteers are desired for all categories. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
Please complete the Judges Registration online form. You will be contacted to advise you of the scheduled time for judge's orientation, please review the tentative agenda of this conference.
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
