The American Cancer Society is TSA’s National Service Project. Chapters can take place in Relay for Life or any other ACS sponsored event to earn recognition at the National Conference.

Chapters can earn the following awards at the national level for outstanding service to ACS:

Platinum Award: $500 – $999 raised during the year
Diamond Award: $1,000 – $1,999 raised during the year
Purple Award: $2,000 & above raised during the year


As a part of the State Officer’s Work Plan, we are dedicating a different service project to participate in every month. We encourage all chapters to participate in service as a way to give back to the community and gain team bonding. Here is a list of the projects we plan to participate in for the 2017-2018 school year.
