The students were competing against more than 1,900 of the brightest STEM students from 130 TSA chapters across Pennsylvania in a variety of events during the conference, held April 10-13.
The Penn Manor High School team of Audrey Ritchie and Aliya Trussell placed second in the video game design competition, earning the opportunity to compete in the National TSA Conference this summer.
Other top-10 finishers for Penn Manor were:
Isaac Leshok – Prepared Presentation, 5th place; Jaden Smith – Children’s Stories, 6th place; and Audrey Ritchie and Aliya Trussell – Webmaster, 8th place.
