2005 TSA National Conference in Chicago

June 27-July 2, 2005

This year’s national conference took place at the Sheraton Chicago Towers.  WV took over the 17th, 18th, and 19th floors with 167 people participating from WV. 

TSA members boarded the bus to Chicago on  Monday morning, and arrived about 7:00 pm that evening.  That gave students and advisors a head start on visiting various places such as: the Navy Pier, Science and Technology Museum, the Aquarium, the Sears Building, and of course - Hard Rock Café!  Students from WV entered a total of 128 different events, and were kept busy throughout the week competing and visiting some of the over 600 restaurants in the Chicago area. 

West Virginia did very well in the competitions, with 56 individuals or team members placing in the top ten out of a total of 128 students attending!  That is equivalent to a 40% finalist rate!  Go WV TSA!!    We also brought home 3 trophies in the Top 3, and the 3rd place winner in Middle School Formula 1 Teams in Schools!
