Want to get involved with TrigStar but don't know where to start? Check out this information packet which also contains sample questions. The NSPS TrigStar website has a lot of program information and useful resources. And of course the TrigStar Committee can also assist and maybe even help connect you to someone locally who's already doing TrgStar.
