State Service Project
Oklahoma TSA’s State Service Project is the American Cancer Society. ACS funding goes towards research, supporting cancer patients, and spreading the word about how to prevent cancer.
We support ACS throughout the year at our Fall Leadership Conference, Mini-Conferences, and State Conference. Chapters that raise any amount in donations for ACS during the current school year are recognized at State Conference. In the past the OKTSA State Officer team has had pie-in-the-face fundraisers, sold custom pop sockets, and hosted an ACS mixer night at State Conference.
ACS is also TSA’s national Service project, chapters and officer teams that raise the most money are recognized on the national level. Oklahoma TSA was recognized at the 2018 National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia for our fundraising efforts in the 2017-2018 school year.
All chapters are welcome to participate in any ACS events in their area, and are encouraged to come to the yearly ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk that the State Officer team attends.
Beginning at the 2019 State Conference, any chapter that raises any amount will be recognized for their contribution at the State Conference. Any chapter that raises $1000 or more will receive a plaque at State Conference, and will be recognized at the general session of the TSA National Conference.
All paperwork and documentation of ACS Fundraising is due no later than March 1st.
