  12. The completed pin design must be submitted to tsakansas@gmail.com by midnight on December 1, 2017.

The criteria in numbers one through eight (1-8), and either number nine or number ten (9 or 10) are required in order to be deemed a legal entry.  Any criteria not met will eliminate the pin design from being judged.

If similar or numerous entries are received, the Kansas TSA BOD reserves the right to narrow the entry numbers in order to electronically post the designs for voting in a reasonable manner.  The Kansas TSA BOD may also re-post top entries in order to achieve an entry with a majority vote.


If no legal and or complete entries are submitted and received by the deadline, the contest may be re-opened for up to one month and any Kansas TSA Parent, Kansas TSA alum, member of the Kansas TSA Board, and or any Kansas TSA advisor may enter a design.
Note: if this is necessary, then the winning design will be determined by the State Officer Team.

The winner will receive a FREE 2017 Kansas TSA Conference Registration and package of their winning pins!
