STA March Plaidness


About STA's March Plaidness

It wasn't that long ago that you were proudly wearing the tartan plaid. You called STA "home" and made countless memories that will last a lifetime.

March Plaidness is a new way for our young alums (classes of 2000-2016) to give to your alma mater, and have fun competing with other recent grads.

When you make a gift during #STAMarchPlaidness you provide an opportunity for current students to make memories like yours and continue to excel in all areas of an STA education.

The giving challenge begins on Thursday, March 23rd and concludes on Thursday, March 30th. Make a gift to the Academy and pass on a new STA tradition to the next generation of STArs.

Challenge Goal

We are challenging all young alums to contribute! Can we beat the goal of getting 200 young alums to play? Your class rank will be determined by the percentage of your classmates who donate to STA March Plaidness.

Please donate what you can...but most importantly, please participate! Make some points for your class...donate today! The competition is on...for 8 days! Your class could be the first to win the STA March Plaidness crown.

Class Rankings

Forget the brackets...your classmates and you are in the competition to the end date, March 30th! Every hour of every day of STA March Plaidness, you have the chance to score. Remember...participation is the key! We'll update the class rankings on the STA Facebook page and on
