WCTSMA Packs Yakima Convention Center for State Competition

Over 700 WCTSMA members invaded the Yakima Convention Center last weekend for the 20th annual Spring Symposium and State Competition. Total numbers were close to 900 with vendors, proctors and other support personnel.

Houston Kraft and Jim Wallis captivated the crowd with their "Rock Star" performances behind the microphone. WCTSMA State Officers went out with a "bang" as most entertained their last duties on the student board. New State Officers were selected while 2 returning State Officers will resume the duty of president in a co-chair position.

Issaquah High School defended their state title with a win over Wenatchee in a usual tight battle. Our California friends, Valencia, proved their intelligence with a strong 3rd place finish and a number 6 finish overall in grade point average.

Results will be available shortly on the website as we piece together student forum, poster presentations, JV quiz bowl, and speed taping finishes.
