NSC Student Assembly Challenge

  • The Student Assembly Challenge (SAC) is a nationwide contest that challenges all PT and PTA students to represent their program and show their school pride at National Student Conclave!

    How It Works

    Every PT/PTA program falls into to 1 of 5 geographic zones (.pdf) based on the distance students must travel (500 mile increments) to get to the NSC host city, Louisville, KY. The program in each zone with the highest percentage of students in attendance at NSC will be named the winners of the Student Assembly Challenge.

    What Winning Programs Receive

    • A professional plaque to display in your department's "trophy case"
    • Recognition at the NSC Opening Ceremony
    • A picture taken with APTA President, Paul Rockar
    • Acknowledgement through APTA and Student Assembly social media
    • Bragging rights for a year!
