Competitive Event Helpers Needed
We are all familiar with the phrase, "All Hands on Deck!" In order to conduct quality experiences we need every advisor to help with conducting our regional and state competitive events. Your expertise and assistance along with that of industry representatives will allow us to provide those positive experiences.

Please download the below form, complete it and email the form to Jim Scott. We will then copy the form and give the appropriate forms to the respective Region Captain for potential use as they plan and prepare for the regional competition. No teacher will be asked or allowed to judge their own student(s). If you know of others who would be willing to assist, please copy the form and email it to Ohiohosa.14@gmail.com.
National Pediatric Cancer Project
The delegates at the International Leadership Conference in Dallas, TX voted to embrace the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation (NPCF) as the official HOSA initiative. This partnership is for the next two school years.

The below website will be the main source for all involvement with the NPCF as well as where HOSA members and advisors can go to download marketing materials, educational Power points, and videos. Keep checking back as they will continually be adding new resources!

In terms of fundraising, please forward this information to your local Ohio c hapter leaders. T he ‘Leaders Guide’ sign up as well as the ‘Individual Guide’ document can be accessed by clicking on the below words, "Leaders" and "Individuals" and the below website.
