The TSA Member-of-the-Month recognition provides an opportunity for TSA members to receive national recognition by participating in warm-up challenges posted each month.

Warm-up challenges explore TSA competitions in a new an entertaining way. They are designed to be engaging, fun, and to encourage members to think creatively about TSA’s competitive events.

One submission per challenge will be chosen each month, and the submitting member will be featured as a TSA Member-of-the-Month on the national TSA website. To be considered for this recognition, student members submit an entry using the procedures described in the challenge and the submission link provided. All entries that address the challenge will be placed in a random drawing to determine the TSA Member-of-the-Month. Entries must demonstrate thoughtful preparation and follow stated instructions for submission.

Individuals chosen as TSA Member-of-the-Month will have their name and photograph featured on the national TSA website. (An authorization form signed by a student’s parent/guardian will be secured prior to posting.)
