Levels of TSA Competitions and Rules

LEVELS OF COMPETITION

A. The following breakdown of grades is used to designate categories for curricular event entries. Each level has its own unique competitive events guide.

Middle School/Junior High School—Grades 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

High School—Grades 9, 10, 11, 12

Ninth graders must compete at the level in which the chapter affiliates. For example, if the ninth grade is housed in a high school 9-12, the student must compete in high school events. If the ninth grade is housed in a 6-9 or 7-9 school, ninth grade students must compete in middle school events.

B.  If  the  school  has  a  K-12  configuration,  or  a  configuration other than the examples above, contact the CRC chairperson or national TSA for clarification and approval regarding the appropriate school designation.
