Shorewood High School started its first Technology Student Association (TSA) chapter this year and entered the Washington TSA state competition.

Shares TSA Advisor Ms. Nouwens, “These students have just been amazing in their determination, perseverance, and positive energy to get their chapter off the ground. At the 11th hour, TSA Chapter President Grace Abernathy and Maddy Costello rallied the troops to form teams and enter the state competition.”

Eleven students competed, with teams and individuals participating in 10 different events as well as two entries into the cardboard boat contest, with “The Perfect Storm” and “The SS Stormray.”
