This year at the state conference we are excited to announce that we will have a new, team oriented fundraiser titled “Human Hungry, Hungry Hippos”. An example of this game can be found here. The object of the game is to collect as many balls as possible per team.

Members can build their own 4 player team by registering with Katie Kalman, using the email address katelyn.sclesky@gmail.com; be sure to include your school, team name, and team member names. The $5 fee is payable at the state conference on Wednesday, April 29, 2015. Registration with Katie Kalman must be done by Sunday, April 26, 2015. All proceeds from the event will go to the American Cancer Society.

Members who participate will be allowed to wear jeans, tennis shoes, and a TSA t-shirt to the state conference instead of the usual formal clothing.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon!

 


This year at the state conference voting delegates will be voting on a new amendment to the Delaware TSA bylaws. This amendment is aimed at eliminating the problem of candidates running unopposed for state office.

This amendment has already been voted on by the state executive committee and passed unanimously; now it is your turn. Please read the amendment, which can be found here, and if you are a voting delegate be prepared to vote on it at the state conference. We also encourage everyone to talk to their fellow TSA members, and to spread the word.


Even though there is snow on the ground, the state conference is just around the corner. The deadline for early conference registration and state officer applications is February 27th.

If you are a Delaware TSA member looking to run for a state office please fill out the form here, and follow the instructions on when, and where to turn in your application, as well as information about the other steps of the application process.

We look forward to meeting with all of the candidates!


Last week the Delaware TSA state officers took part in an event called the Invention Convention at the Hagley Museum in Wilmington. This event is specifically geared towards young children, and encourages them to get creative. The event features a science show, an invention room, and a deconstruction room.

The science show featured a chemist conducting various experiments for a large crowd of children and parents alike. In the invention room children could build anything they desired with the help of volunteers, and tons of items like cardboard, and soda bottles. In the deconstruction room children could take apart household items such as clocks, and computers to see how they worked.

The state officers aided in keeping the work areas safe, stocked, and clean; the officers also enjoyed the opportunity to share information regarding different items the children found interesting, such as hard drives, and wireless routers. We look forward to coming back and doing it all again next year!

The Delaware TSA state officers recently got together to participate in a classic holiday fundraising event, bell ringing for the Salvation Army. During their three hour time slot the officers collected an estimated $300, all of which went to support the salvation army.

This event was great for getting outside and raising not only money, but also awareness for the struggles many of our fellow Americans face during the winter season. The officers are very grateful for this opportunity, and would recommend it to any group looking to help their community.
