TAG-Ed Volunteer Opportunity: Georgia Technology Student Association
Wednesday, February 8, 2023
On March 16 & 17, 2023, Georgia Technology Student Association (TSA) will be hosting its State Leadership Conference at the Classic Center in Athens and we need approximately 200 volunteers to serve as competitive events judges.
The mission of Georgia TSA is to prepare its membership to be successful leaders and responsible citizens in a technological society through co-curricular activities within the technology education program which include communication, leadership, and competitive skill development in the classroom/laboratory environment. With a membership of over 24,000 middle and high school students across the state, Georgia TSA is actively working to ensure students with an interest in STEM are college and career ready.
The State Leadership Conference is the culmination of a great deal of hard work and dedication by students and their teachers as over 2500 students gather together at the Classic Center in Athens for a showcase of talent. Events range from CAD to Video Game Design to Promotional Graphics to Flight Endurance. It is quite an outstanding student leadership event!
Volunteers are needed to serve as competitive events judges on Thursday, March 16th and Friday, March 17th in order to evaluate student projects and presentations in over 60 competitions. Each competitive event session requires about 4 hours and volunteers can certainly serve in more than one session if your schedule permits. There are many events with a Phase 1 & 2 and it is very helpful to have the same team of volunteers in the morning and afternoon for these events.
Volunteers are also needed to evaluate projects online prior to the conference in Athens. The timeline for online judging is February 28 - March 13 and it will typically require 10-15 hours of service.
I hope you will be able to join us and that perhaps you can assist us in recruiting other qualified volunteers who seek to invest time and expertise into preparing future designers, inventors, innovators and engineers.
If you are able to volunteer as a competitive events judge – either online, in person or both, please register here. We will forward you to the appropriate volunteer lead. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Heather@tagonline.org.
