Students representing Leavenworth High School recently returned from a Technology Student Association National Conference with a first-place trophy.

Ashley Dunivan, who graduated from high school in May, and senior Conner Engen won the first-place trophy in a computer integrated manufacturing competition, according to Ruth Striggow, a Leavenworth High School teacher and TSA adviser.

The TSA National Conference took place June 22-26 in Atlanta.

According to the organization's website, TSA is an organization of "students engaged in science, technology, engineering and mathematics." Students compete in various TSA events.

For the computer integrated manufacturing competition, Dunivan and Engen created a pencil box using a laser engraver and 3-D printer, according to Striggow.

Dunivan and Engen competed in the computer integrated manufacturing competition at the national conference after taking first-place in the same event during a state conference earlier in the year.

Dunivan also placed second at the national conference in a photographic technology competition.

The competition required students to present a photo portfolio to judges.

Dunivan and Engen competed in other events at the national conference. Daniel Lentz, who recently graduated from high school, and seniors Jacob Karrasch, Will Franklin and Jack Roberts also competed in events at the national conference, according to Striggow.

Striggow said she was "very pleased" with the performance of the Leavenworth students.

"They represented Leavenworth so well," she said.

Dunivan, who is the outgoing state president for TSA, took time during the conference to help train students who will serve in officer positions in the coming school. Karrasch, Franklin and Jack Roberts will be among those serving in state officer positions.
