New Resources
Regional Competitive Events Information
With the changes in our regional competitive events format this year, we wanted to provide you with a one-stop location to provide you and your students with easy, complete resources to answer your questions and to serve as a reference as the students prepare for the regional competitions. We have created individual sheets with details for all of the regional competitive events.

Inform your students that they can locate these useful resources on the Ohio HOSA website under the events tab, then click on regional events button and finally on the Virtual Regional Event Information.

That is where you will find specific details about each of the regional events we are holding this year along with timelines, procedures, etc. As always, the students must read the complete guidelines posted on the National HOSA website.

For your convenience, click on the below button to access the Virtual Regional Events Information sheets.

Special thanks to National HOSA who developed these templates for states to personalize for their use.
