LEAP Legacy Chapter

Participate in LEAP Legacy Chapter for your chance to be recognized at the 2017 National TSA Conference.

Submit your chapter's LEAP Legacy Chapter Portfolio now through March 30th!

LEAP Legacy Chapter is a comprehensive leadership recognition program offered to middle and high school chapters as an optional national TSA activity that includes a competition component. Chapters demonstrate –  and are evaluated on – their involvement in LEAP activities related to The Student Leadership Challenge-Five Practices for Becoming an Exemplary Leader (SLC-Five Practices)*, and their achievements in the core philosophy of Be. Know. Do.

Chapters complete LEAP Legacy Portfolios, which consist of a cover page, activities template and supporting documents, that are submitted electronically by chapter advisors via www.submittable.com. Portfolio submissions will be evaluated by judges assembled by national TSA. Based on minimum qualifying scores, one middle school and one high school per state will be selected as semifinalists. Ten middle school chapters and ten high school chapters will be selected to advance as national semifinalists.  National semifinalist chapters compete as participants in the TSA Meet and Greet event at the annual national TSA conference.

First through third place middle and high school chapters will receive $1,000, $500, and $250, respectively.  First through third place chapter winners also will receive trophies on stage at the conference Awards Ceremony.
