Dixon students did an outstanding job at the State TSA (Technology Student Association) Conference this year. There were 23 students representing Dixon, and they competed in 22 events. Our students won 6 first place team awards, 6 Second place awards, and 3 third place awards.
We won more team first place awards, and more awards overall, than Dixon has ever won in the past.
These students have been working all year long, often working after school on their competitions projects. Their efforts have paid off, and we now have many students that are eligible to attend the Nationals Conference & competition in Atlanta, Georgia this coming June.
