Each year the competitions are different in scope, but similar to what other students in academic areas such as mathematics and science compete in. Each competition has Level 1 (6-9 grades) and Level 2 (10-12 grades) components. Each competition is based on the Standards for Technological Literacy: Content for the Study of Technology, Common Core Mathematics Standards, and the Next Generation Science Standards. Schools do not have to hold official TSA affiliation to compete at Technology Day.

Dr. Josh Brown, IL-TSA Post-Secondary Representative, is in charge of Technology Day, and can be reached at 309.438.5874 or email at jbrown4@ilstu.edu.
