Recognitions

Florida TSA Technology Honor Society

The Florida Technology Student Association Technology Honor Society is designed to recognize those students who excel in academics, leadership, and service towards their school and community.

  • It is an opportunity for student members to be recognized for their efforts.
  • It is designed to recognize TSA members who exemplify the high ideals of academics.
  • It is designed to recognize students for accomplishments.

There is no limit to the number of students who can apply. All applications will be reviewed and forwarded to the State Advisor who will notify National TSA. Inductees will be recognized at the State Conference in Orlando, Florida with a special award and will be featured in the Florida TSA “Informer.” Graduating seniors will receive a TSA sash from Florida TSA which may be worn at graduation, if the school allows it.

As members of the Florida TSA Technology Honor Society, your TSA members will automatically become members of the National TSA Technology Honor Society. Members will receive a certificate and a lapel pin designed specifically for inductees by our national association. Inductees will then be recognized at the TSA National Conference in Orlando, Florida.
