Participants take a written test of basic forensic science theory to qualify as semifinalists. Semifinalist teams will examine a mock crime scene and demonstrate their knowledge of forensic science and crime scene analysis. Students will be expected to survey the scene and use proper techniques to collect evidence from the mock crime scene. Students will then collect their data and perform a detailed written analysis of the crime scene.
Event Guidelines are located on the National TSA website under your chapter advisor login screen, select Total TSA from the dropdown menu.
Entries are limited to three teams per chapter.
Team members will take an online test over forensic science March 1st-15th, 2020 to determine the semifinalists. Testing information has been sent directly to your school testing liaison if you set one up with us, in previous years. If you have not sent us that information or you need to change who your liaison is, please send an email to email@example.com Subject line: TSA Testing Liaison, and let me know their name, title, and email address.
